Workouts

The workouts listed below are the scheduled workouts for the TriGators that will always happen. We often schedule other workouts through our Facebook page. Announcements from our coaches concerning track and swim practice are distributed through the e-mail listserv. To join the email listserv 1) send an email to listserv@lists.ufl.edu
2) in the body of that email put the text “subscribe TRIGATORS-L (your first name) (your last name)” so for example “subscribe TRIGATORS-L Elizabeth Smith”

A sports club waiver is required to participate in practices. The waivers are very important, please complete them as soon as possible. To sign the waiver, click here OR login to GatorConnect and under the “Organizations ” tab > “Find an Organization” and put in Trigators and on our page under the Trigators heading is a link that will take you to the waiver.

A Gator1 ID is required for swimming workouts.

Note — Additional workouts, especially bike rides, will be planned on our Facebook page.
