My name is Thomas Baxter, and I am excited to be returning as the Head Coach for Bocage Racquet Club. This summer will serve as my second season as Head Coach with Bocage and my fifth summer with SELA Aquatics. In previous summers, I have served as the Head Coach and Pool Manager for both Bocage Racquet Club and Mirabeau Park Aquatic Club. I was a year-round competitive swimmer with Tiger Aquatics for over 12 years, so I have spent most of my life around the sport. Currently, I am finishing up my sophomore year at Louisiana State University in Construction Management, and I will serve as the Pool Manager this summer. After a summer off from coaching, I am eager to return to the pool deck!
Hunter just completed his sophomore year at LSU where he is majoring in biochemistry. This will be his fourth summer working for SELA and his third summer serving as a swim coach. He will serve as the Regional Supervisor for BREC this summer. He's excited to be able to get back in the water and help the kids improve their strokes.
Santos is a junior at East Ascension High School in Gonzales. This year will be Santos's first year coaching, but he has been swimming summer league for 5 years. Santos has also been competitively swimming for Tiger Aquatics for almost a year in which he specializes in the 50 and 100 freestyle. Santos looks forward to getting to know all the kids, encourage them to have fun, and help them develop proper technique. This summer will be Santos's 3rd summer with SELA Aquatics and he will also serve as the Head Guard at Bocage.
My name is Victoria Rodrigue, and I am super excited to be a swim coach at Bocage this summer! I am a junior at St. Amant High School enrolled in the Early College Option at River Parish Community College. I’ve been swimming for both St. Amant and Tiger Aquatics for over two years. My favorite stroke is backstroke, so I am very excited to teach the techniques I have learned to the swimmers. I am excited to meet the swimmers and have a fun season!

I am so excited to be coaching this summer, and cannot wait to get started!
