TG Hires New Coach


Dear TG Families,

After an extensive interview process TG is proud to announce that we have hired a fantastic new coach that will be a strong addition to our coaching staff.  Chico Rego will be joining us on January 2, 2018.  A Brazilian native, Chico has spent the last 3 years coaching Auburn University as a Graduate Assistant while he earned his Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology.  Since graduating in May of 2017 he has been a volunteer assistant with the Auburn Pro Team working with several U.S and foreign Olympians alongside renowned coach, Sergio Lopez.  Chico has also had high level club coaching experience in Brazil as a member of the coaching staff for the National Junior Team representing Rio de Janeiro where his athletes set meet records.  In addition to volunteering with the Auburn Pro team he has been coaching club swimming in nearby Opelika, AL.  Chico has a high energy level and passion for the sport.  His philosophy is that a coach has to give the level of energy, effort and enthusiasm that he expects to get from the swimmers.  As a Head Coach I am excited to have someone like Chico to help TG excel to new heights.  Welcome aboard, Chico!!
