SWIFT Offseason Training Approach:

​The SWIFT offseason training approach is broken down into three distinct phases purposed to provide key training in body mechanics, strength, speed & agility and event specific training in a effort to prepare for the upcoming track season. Each phase has an associated testing day to provide evidence of athletic progress.

 

3 Phase Training Approach:

  • Phase 3: Feb 11th - Mar 5th ( Sat & Sun)

 

"Track" Based Training Approach:

In a effort to maximize both training and preparation, athletes should sign up for the appropriate track for their primary training ONLY. The training track should focus on their primary event or area of interest. If an athlete is unsure please sign up for the 'sprint' track and SWIFT coaching will determine the best area. The purpose of track based training is to ensure athletes are prepared for the correct events and not placed in a one-size fits all offseason program.
