Swimming Performance Training (SwimmingPT)
STT’s Swimming Performance Training (SwimmingPT) program includes instruction to movement efficiency, power development, strength, and durability. The athletes participating in the SwimPT program are closely supervised and attention is always paid to proper technique and safety.
There is no better way to prepare a team for the upcoming season than to have them train together. Besides the benefits of getting stronger, faster, and in better shape as a group, this program can also increase team bonding. Numerous teams in the Baltimore/DMV area have taken advantage of STT’s Team Training Program and have had highly successful seasons.

SwimmingPT Weak Link Program
Whether you are training for the neighborhood championship or the Olympic games, you can get injured. STT’s Sport-Appropriate Weak Link program focuses on the following for swimming:
• Hip and Groin
• Forearm, hand and fingers
• Head, neck, and upper back
Short Course (October to February): Coaches will tell you that this time of year is the most critical. With tough practices and proper meet preparations, working out an additional three or four times per week is an unlikely possibility. A 1-2 day per week in-season dryland program is much more feasible and practical to implement. In order to make training as convenient as possible, STT offers both team training sessions and individual athlete training options too.
Long Course Season (March to July): Intense training with the emphasis on improved strength, conditioning, flexibility, and skill development. This two day a week dryland program offers each player an opportunity to develop his or her physical and mental capabilities through prudent, productive, practical and purposeful training.
Off-Season (August): After a physical season, injury management is a crucial component of a swimmer’s year long training cycle. Post-rehabilitation program development and implementation, as well as general physical preparedness programming, allow the athlete to heal up and improve their mind and body. This program will help to continue strengthening weakened areas, while improving flexibility and mobility.
Pre-Season (September): Intense training with the emphasis on improved strength, conditioning, flexibility, and skill development. This 2-3 day a week dryland program offers each swimmer an opportunity to develop his or her physical and mental capabilities through prudent, productive, practical and purposeful training.
