Caitlin Cothern

Assistant Coach

Email

I grew in Jonesboro, Arkansas where I started swimming at 10 years old for the Jonesboro Jets Aquatic Club up until I moved over to the Dart Frog Aquatics the summer before my senior year in high school. Some highlights from my high school career include: 2012 Arkansas All-State Team, 2012-2015 Placed Top 5 in 100 Breaststroke, 2014 & 2015 6A Arkansas State Champions, 2014 Women’s Swim Team Co-Captain, 2015 Women’s Swim Team Captain.

I began my coaching career with Dart Frog Aquatics during their summer seasons following my senior year in high school, and freshman and sophomore year in college. For my Freshman and Sophomore years in college I attended Lindenwood University. My freshman year I was a part of the Women’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Team specializing in the 100,200 breaststroke. Following this season, I was told the cartilage behind my knee caps had become too weak. I was not able to train how I needed to continue my NCAA swimming career. My sophomore year I began coaching with Parkway Swim Club and realized how much I missed training and competing. I began training for my first open water race and was fortunate enough to have placed 2nd in the 18-25 age group for both the 1-mile race and 2.5-mile race.

Working with the kids at Parkway allowed me to find my passion for working with kids and nutrition/fitness. I decided to transfer to the University of Arkansas to study Nutrition & Dietetics and start working towards the career goal of a Pediatric Dietitian.
