Injury Prevention Routine:

Your coach has outlined a regimen of Injury Prevention exercises that swimmers should complete before every swim session. This takes approximately 15 minutes. Swimmers will be required to complete the exercises before beginning training. 

You will need a red Theraband for the Injury Prevention exercises on pool deck. We also highly recommend having your own foam roller, trigger ball, and spikey ball for post-training recovery.
