Thibodaux Regional Wellness Center to Host MPA Ladies Football Clinic

The Sports Medicine Center of Thibodaux Regional has been busy planning the details of this summer’s Manning Passing Academy (MPA) along with Nicholls State University and MPA personnel. MPA events begin next week with the Ladies’ Clinic on Wednesday, June 26. This year’s Academy is going to be better than ever: not only are some of the biggest names in college football from across the country coming to serve as counselors for campers, Thibodaux Regional is proud to also help elevate the MPA Ladies Football Clinic to the next level by hosting the Ladies Clinic in our state-of-the-art Wellness Center.

The MPA Ladies Football Clinic will be held Wednesday, June 26 starting at 6 pm. Speakers include Nicholls State University head football coach Tim Rebowe, New Orleans Saints team physician Dr. Andrew Gottschalk, NFL on Fox sideline reporter Jennifer Hale, who’s also a spokesperson for Thibodaux Regional, and our Sports Medicine Center staff Amelia Castell and Paige Morvant, Athletic Trainers, and Lilli Rozanski, Sports & Fitness Dietitian. The clinic is free – just register here:

The MPA Ladies Football Clinic will be organized into four quarters and will allow girls and women to get first-hand knowledge of what football is like behind the scenes from experts currently in the game. When you have a better understanding of what’s happening on and off the field, it makes watching games and cheering on your favorite team that much more fun.

Thibodaux Regional and the Manning Passing Academy are also partnering with the non-profit Sideline Pass Foundation for this endeavor to help financially challenged female student athletes in South Louisiana. Thibodaux Regional spokesperson Jen Hale founded Sideline Pass. Guests will have an opportunity to participate in a raffle benefitting the Foundation that includes signed memorabilia from Peyton, Eli and Archie Manning …as well as a Reagan Charleston necklace, an NFL on Fox gift bag, a Nicholls State University gift bag and a gift certificate to Tour Cycling Studio in the Warehouse District. Chances are only $5 each and can be purchased in person at the Ladies Clinic or online at

“Sideline Pass is dedicated to both opening doors for young women in South Louisiana and making sure they’re prepared to charge through them,” Jen Hale says. “The opportunity to partner with Thibodaux Regional and the Manning Passing Academy Ladies Clinic is fabulous! Sideline Pass is so grateful. We’ll use the proceeds to help under-privileged female athletes participate in organized sports. When you hear about young ladies who are trying to run track with the toes cut out of old tennis shoes because they’ve outgrown them and can’t afford a new pair, it breaks your heart. Archie, the Manning Passing Academy Ladies Football Clinic and Thibodaux Regional are going to help us change that for under-privileged female student athletes in South Louisiana.”

Reserve your spot today for this fabulous and free ladies football clinic: Individuals as well as groups are invited to attend. We’re looking forward to seeing more female football fans this year as we help grow this clinic into one of the best in the country.
