Travis Kelce is on a football break.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end wrapped another NFL season after helping his team secure a second-consecutive Super Bowl victory against the San Fransisco 49ers on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Now, Kelce has entered the NFL offseason and has several months free until preseason practices start, with specific dates and times for teams to be announced in the spring. While the Chiefs player has some freedom to enjoy his time off over the next few months, he'll likely continue to train to stay in shape, too.

In the week leading up to the Super Bowl, Kelce was asked by reporters about his plans for the offseason. However, the champ — hungry for his third Super Bowl win — understandably didn't have his sights set past Sunday's Big Game.

Meanwhile, those close to Kelce have shared what could be on the athlete's agenda. His mom, Donna Kelce, spoke with PEOPLE a few days before the Super Bowl and teased what's in store for both Travis and his brother Jason.

"I think it's going to be fun this year," the football mom said at the time. "A lot of us are doing a lot of different things," she added.

Andrew Spruill, Travis' longtime personal trainer — who's worked with the athlete for seven of the last 11 NFL offseasons — told Florida outlet The Palm Beach Post in December that he expects Travis to return again this year.

Read on for everything we know about Travis Kelce's offseason plans so far.

Does Travis Kelce have practice in the offseason?

Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs offseason training schedule was released in March 2023 — so if the reveal of the 2024 offseason training schedule follows suit, it can be expected to be made public next month.

In 2023, the Chiefs training camp kicked off on July 23 at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri, and their official offseason grind ran through Aug. 17, with some days open to the public (except July 19-21).

The team will also start holding OTAs — Organized Team Activities — in late May, which, while technically voluntary practices, they typically draw the entire team.

And although Travis doesn't have official team training until the summer, he still puts in the work to stay in shape until then. Andrew Spruill, a personal trainer who owns the company Game Speed Trainer, has been his go-to in recent years.

“According to him, he’s coming back,’’ Spruill said of Travis midseason. “I went up for two games to go see him. I trust he’ll be back, especially if he wants to keep playing at the age he is. He needs to get in the gym and make sure he’s ready.’’

Will Travis Kelce spend time with family in the offseason?

Technically, the Chiefs offseason began immediately after Mecole Hardman strolled into the end zone to score the game-winning touchdown in the Super Bowl on Feb. 11.

Travis' family, of course, was in attendance and celebrated with him on the field after the game. Plus, Jason kept the fun going with Travis at the various afterparties later that night.

Since then, Travis has collaborated with Jason on their podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, presented by Wave Sports & Entertainment — though, they weren't together in person for the recording. However, Donna shared with PEOPLE in February that she foresees the brothers uniting in Pennsylvania to film during the offseason.

"I have a feeling there'll be some traveling, and probably some podcasts or what have you in Philadelphia," she said, referring to New Heights.

As for Donna herself, she said she hopes to spend time with both her sons during their time away from the field. "I'm looking forward to spending time with them in the off-season, but they're also very busy. They need to get away themselves just to relax," she said.

And the Kelce family will also make time to give back during their break from football. "Probably the biggest thing will be to do some charity work," said Donna.

"They're both involved in that. We always go to Sea Isle every year, and that's always fun, for the Autism Challenge," Donna added, shining light on the annual fundraiser supporting the Eagles Autism Foundation.

Will Travis Kelce travel in the offseason?

Donna said she had a "feeling" her sons would be traveling during their offseason — and she was right! Jason has already traveled to Las Vegas to support Travis in the Super Bowl and Florida to visit Disney World with his wife, Kylie Kelce, and their three daughters.

Now, it's Travis' turn to travel! Since his offseason started, he's already been back to Nevada to play golf at the Wynn Las Vegas. The visit was short, though, as he then flew over to Hawaii before jetting off to Australia to visit his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, who's on tour.

Travis touched down in Australia on Feb. 22, according to 9News and Channel 7's The Morning Show. The couple spent time at Sydney Zoo, with Swift taking Travis on a “private tour,” according to local media outlet news.com.au. According to 9News, the pair fed kangaroos during their outing and snapped selfies as they walked around the zoo hand-in-hand.

Before the Super Bowl, a source told PEOPLE that Travis and Swift "are making plans for the summer and are excited to travel together in Europe when Taylor takes her tour there." The pop star has been a staple at the athlete's games throughout the season, and now he's ready to return the favor.

“Football is everything to him. He lives and breathes it. But he’s ready for some downtime now and to show up for Taylor the way she has for him,” the insider said at the time.

PEOPLE confirmed on Feb. 21 that the tight end was headed to Sydney to support Swift on her upcoming Eras Tour dates, and he later touched down in Australia on Feb. 22. The pop star will perform her Eras Tour at the Accor Stadium in Sydney on Feb. 23, with shows running until Feb. 26.

Then, Swift heads to Singapore for the next stop of the tour on March 2. Travis' dad, Ed Kelce, told The Sydney Morning Herald that he spoke to his son "after the Super Bowl" about his plans to travel globally.

"I asked him, are you going to take off for Sydney, and he seemed keen," Ed shared, noting that while Travis "said he'd really like to see Sydney and Singapore," the Chiefs tight end "wasn't sure because he has commitments."
