Along with the glorious weather and first-class facilities, the Swans have been busy fine-tuning their sharpness, skills and fitness during the tour of America.
With another campaign ahead in the Premier League, Michael Laudrup’s squad have often put in double sessions in their time across the Pond.
And while Laudrup is casting his eye on the squad on the training pitch, goalkeeping coach Adrian Tucker is busy preparing Michel Vorm and Gerhard Tremmel for the new season.
There may be a new manager in the hotseat, but the focus in training remains the same for Tucker.
“I spoke to the manager when he came in to get an understanding of the way he works with the goalkeeping coaches,” said Tucker at the club’s temporary HQ in Ojai, California.
“I have to adapt to any manager who comes in with a style of play.
“I have got to remain open-minded to my coaching as there’s many ways of doing things. But it has to link in with the style and system we want to play.
“Whether that is 4-3-3 or 4-4-2, direct or a passing side, I’ll adapt to whatever the manager requires.
“We’ve had conversations and he wants the guys to carry on and try and keep possession as much as we can.
“From a goalkeepers point of view, that is important in the work I carry out with them.”
Vorm’s involvement in the Euros – and a new addition to his family this summer - meant Tremmel was the only player to get a full 90 minutes in the opening tour match against MLS side Colorado Rapids.
Both are expected to get some game time in the game against Ventura County Fusion today (5pm local, 1am BST).
And Tucker couldn’t have asked for much more from his two senior keepers, who are constantly pushing each other on in training here in America.
“Gerhard has been training for the last four or five weeks, and we also had a few sessions during the off season as he came back from Germany to do it. That’s a credit to him,” Tucker revealed.
“Michel had a break due to his commitment in the Euros, while he obviously missed a bit of training because he had a new addition to the family.
“But he’s a natural athlete – he’s quick and agile so he’ll have no problems getting back to his level of sharpness.
“Over the next few games on the tour he’ll be playing a part in them, so that will help.”
Tucker held special praise for Tremmel, who has shown exactly the right attitude since his arrival at the Liberty.
The German stopper managed just three appearances last season due to Vorm’s excellent performances which immediately caught the eye.
“It’s always difficult for Gerhard with his situation last year because of the level of Michel’s performances.
“To be a number two, which is the case at the present time, is difficult. But there are other sides to it – his attitude and dedication on and off the field as a back-up and support has been absolutely phenomenal.
He deserved his opportunity to play the other night and show what he can do.
When you are only playing once every few weeks it is difficult as you don’t get into any rhythm. It’s all about momentum.
But Gerhard has done very well, and people should recognise the contribution he makes in putting pressure on Michel and ensuring he’s on his toes day in day out.
He has settled into the group very well and he’s a great character to have around. He’s always smiling, and I’m sure he’ll keep that attitude up.”

Meanwhile, a youthful Swans XI were held 1-1 at Welsh Premier League side Carmarthen Town today.
The visitors started the brighter and Rory Donnelly should have put them ahead after two minutes but he dragged his shot wide of the post.
However, it was the Northern Irishman who broke the deadlock shortly after as he latched onto a clever through ball from Henry Jones before rounding the keeper and tucking the ball into the back of the net.
The home side soon threatened themselves as former Cardiff City striker Leonne Jeanne turned the Swansea defence before delivering a delicate cross for Jonathan Hood to head over from close range.
A scuffed clearance from Carmarthen keeper Steve Cann nearly gifted Alex Bray the chance to make it two, but he recovered well to make the save as the game was played out in a frantic manner.
Soon after, the Welsh Premier League side were level when Jack Christopher forced a save from David Cornell and as he returned the ball back across the box, Jonathon Hood tucked the ball past two defenders and into the net.
Henry Jones stung the palms off Cann from a tight angle on the stroke of half-time before Lee Lucas nearly put the Swans back in front in the second period with a curling free-kick that Cann did superbly well to tip away.
Donnelly the blazed over from inside the box, while James Loveridge saw his effort crash back off the post as the visitors pressed for a winner.
However, with five minutes to go Carmarthen nearly stole a winner when Paul Fowler’s drilled shot from the edge box was well saved by Cornell and from the resulting corner, Lee Bevan ghosted in at the back post to head over.
David Cornell, Daniel Alfei, Scott Tancock, Darnel Situ, Lee Lucas (Josh Sheehan 70), Henry Jones, Curtis Obeng, Rory Donnelly, James Loveridge, Sam Evans, Alex Bray.
