The Rainbow Warriors’ 2017 spring practice will run from Feb. 20 through March 24, head coach Nick Rolovich told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

In Rolovich’s first year as UH head coach, the Warriors conducted the 2016 spring training after the spring break. This time,the 2017 spring training will precede the start of spring break. The timing, Rolovich said, will allow the Warriors “to get a good five-week cycle of lifting before spring ball.”

UH’s spring semester begins Jan. 9.

The Warriors will open spring training on Monday, Feb.20, spreading 15 practices over five weeks. There will be a spring game on Friday, March 24, preferably at UH’s Ching Athletic Complex.

“Basically, by then, they can have the entire offense or most of it learned,” Rolovich said.

The players can train on their own after that. The final week of classes begins May 1. Final-exam week begins May 8.
