In Rebecca Bush’s article, “Outdoor Track vs. Indoor Track,” she explains: “In the US, the Indoor Track and Field season traditionally takes place during the winter months, December to March.”
Bush added that training in an indoor facility was the practical solution for those in areas that experienced winter in its full intensity. “Indoor Track is often thought of as preparatory to the outdoor season – which takes place in the spring and summer months of March to July,” she stated.
Meanwhile, in “Benefits of Indoor Track and Field” – an article published on the Coach Up Nation website – writer Dwayne Waite Jr. pointed out that Indoor Track and Field facilities are ideal venues for “intentional practice.”
Apparently, as Waite revealed, intentional practice involves focusing on specific areas that a runner needs to improve on. This, experts assert, is much more effective than simple repetition because it “allows athletes to practice for a reason – whether it is competing for a time, trying to beat a teammate or another team, or a chance to make practice mean something.”
S.I.T.E.C., Inc., intends to provide the best possible conditions for student athletes and running enthusiasts. Its primary goal is to manage a setting that is conducive to training and competing. This includes ensuring the safety and security of everyone who enters the facility to a training atmosphere to motivate and elevate performance.
One theme is that S.I.T.E.C., Inc. is innovative and provides a state of the art technology at the facility. Such examples include “pacer lights” around the oval track to help athletes judge and learn a given pace for racing. Other innovations include immediate feedback through video-graphics in looking at themselves training/competing and adjusting techniques to improve practice and performance.
