She excels in developing and implementing high-level student-athlete environments for teaching, learning, and training proper fundamentals and techniques. Coach Martin has been actively serving in the USA Track & Field Arizona Association for more than 5 years. She is a Level 1 USATF coach, specializing in mid/long-distance and block starts.

“I was surprised there was no track club in central Phoenix! We have an untapped market of kids who just need coaching to gain confidence, learn proper form and improve their skills. There is nothing like seeing an athlete who is “good” at running discover their natural talent and take what they learned to be a “great” runner. This is where I thrive and why I enjoy what I do.” – Tawnie Martin, Coach of So Swift Athletics.

Practices are normally Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:15 pm to 6:45 pm. All skill levels are welcome to join.
