USA Rugby South Release
Brentwood, TN— November 9, 2020 — Panther Rugby Academy is pleased to announce Lucas Baistrocchi as the academy’s Strength and Conditioning Coach. Baistrocchi will lead PRA’s fitness initiatives and manage ongoing training programs.
Baistrocchi boasts a near lifetime of rugby experience. Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he competed at the high school level before joining the University of Florida Rugby Club. He has represented the USA Collegiate All-Americans and the USA Rugby South All-Stars and has participated in tours in New Zealand, Australia and Japan. “I never imagined where rugby would take me when I first started playing,” says Baistrocchi. “I was able to learn a lot from coaches and players at the top of the game during my travels across the world as part of my endless quest to find what makes the ideal rugby player.”
Currently part of the coaching staff of USA Rugby’s DIA defending national champions, Life University Men’s Rugby, he is also pursuing a Masters in Exercise Science. “My goal is to help athletes prepare for competition and life by sharpening the skills necessary to perform at the best of their ability,” Baistrocchi added.
Baistrocchi is set to launch PRA’s inaugural fitness initiative in November. PRA President Mark Williams believes the addition of Baistrocchi to the PRA team reinforces the organization’s commitment to providing exceptional programs and training for its members. “Lucas’s experience and education are a huge asset to our program,” said Williams, “and we are excited that our members will be able to learn and grow under his guidance.” For more information on Panther Rugby Academy, email
