Winter Season 2018/2019

The winter season will take place October 1 - January 31

We are so excited for a fun, skill filled Winter Training Season! It is important that we are always learning and having fun. This winter TVTC is bringing a new format to help improve your running/swimming. We will continue to have a dedicated run season that culminates with a half/full marathon. For the swim, we will focus on building your technique and comfort.


The run season will focus on 2 things: 1) building your speed/endurance and 2) improving your form. By the end of the season you will be trained to complete a half or full marathon.

This winter TVTC's run season will culminate with the Kaiser Half Marathon on February 3 and Napa Valley Marathon on March 3*.

What you Learn

Led by Boost coach Jeff Pearson, these clinics are designed to improve the freestyle swimming ability of beginner, intermediate and advanced athletes. Participants will be introduced to the Principles of Boost Freestyle Methodology and learn the same principles employed by the world's best athletes.

These are recommended for those new to swimming, and those that want a comparison from last year. We recommend you register for both clinics, so you get the full experience. TVTC winter season includes one swim video analysis with Jeff Pearson, BUT not cost of the clinics.
