The Florida Swim Network (FSN) and Spectrum Sports Performance (SSP) are excited to announce a new educational partnership for swimmers at every level. SSP will be providing FSN ongoing performance information and education specifically relating to strength training (dry-land), injury prevention, periodization, nutrition and much more.
Florida Swim Network is the number one source for competitive swimming in the state of Florida. Covering age groups through Olympic swimmers, as well as club, high school, and college swimming, you can find the latest results, swim news, and special features on floridaswimnetwork.com and social media channels. Partners with the University of Florida, we live stream the Gator’s home swim meets as well as other USA Swimming sanctioned meets around the state.
SSP Swim, powered by Eric McGinnis, will drive the educational information provided to FSN. SSP uses a simple model of: ASSESS, ENHANCE, PERFORM, combined with an extensive systematic approach to provide our athletes the opportunity to enhance their athleticism while decreasing their risk of injury, resulting in career longevity.
McGinnis has been apart of the SSP Team since 2011 as a Strength and Conditioning Coach at Rollins College, a Performance Coach at SSP and as the Director of SSP Swim. He swam at the University of Kentucky and is a former USA Team Member and Gold Medalist at the World University Games.
One of SSP’s true passion is education and spreading the SSP Methodology. “Partnering with FSN provides an incredible platform for us to provide educational and informative information to a large audience of swimmers at all levels,” says Will Hitzelberger, SSP President. “Over the past 10 years we have worked with some world-class swimmers and now, with FSN, we can pass some the knowledge we have gained with them to the rest of Florida.”
“Florida Swim Network has long wanted to add an educational component to our website and swim sports coverage, and Spectrum Sports Performance is the perfect partner to do this. Drawing upon their vast sports experience and training expertise, our readers and viewers will gain valuable insight into how proper nutrition and training directly benefits swimmers not only in their long term performance but in injury prevention, too.” -Bess Auer, digital media manager at Florida Swim Network.
