Thibodaux Regional Health System is pleased to announce the hiring of Aquatic
Swim Coach Robert Fletcher. Fletcher, a former collegiate swimmer, brings
to Thibodaux Regional 30+ years of coaching experience, produced nearly
100 All-Americans, and has seen greater than 50% of his swimmers go on
to compete at the collegiate level. His coaching experience spans the
United States and will enrich opportunities for all ages in our region.
The Thibodaux Regional competitive swimming program will begin this month.
As the community is aware, Crawfish Aquatics announced the discontinuation
of its operations in the Bayou Region this past March. “When the
parents of the swim team approached us requesting our assistance in continuing
the program, we were happy to help,” says Greg Stock, Thibodaux
Regional CEO. “Through our Wellness Center, we continue to work
on perfecting and expanding sports performance. We feel that the opportunity
to work with these talented, young athletes through integrated sports
and wellness services, such as strength and conditioning, sports nutrition,
and injury prevention, will enable high performance and help them to grow
and excel in their sport.”
Thibodaux Regional’s Aquatics Center is state-of-the-art and its
pool was designed and built for competitive swimming. For example, it
is equipped with advanced timing sensor technology. The Aquatics Center
is the only one of its kind in the region and provides an optimal environment
for swimmers to practice and compete.
An informational parent meeting will be held Monday, August 8 at 6 pm on
the fifth floor of Thibodaux Regional Wellness Center located at 726 North
Acadia Road. Swim team tryouts will be held in the afternoons on the following
Tuesday-Thursday. For more information email
