2017 NCAA Division II APPLE Training Institute
In April 2015, we held the inaugural division specific APPLE Conference for Division II student-athletes and administrators. Thirty-nine institutions attended the conference and made significant progress towards completing their action plans. One administrator wrote “Our follow up meetings have shown that not only the athletics staff including coaches want some form of education for our student-athletes, but the majority of our student-athletes want this education too.” We are pleased to announce that the the second NCAA Division II APPLE Training Institute will be held in Reston, Virginia. Thirty-nine NCAA Division II institutions are participating in September 2017. Schools can learn more by exploring the Division II Institute section of our webiste.
January 2017 APPLE Recap
The 2017 APPLE Training Institutes were held in Charlottesville, VA and Nashville, TN in January. A total of 440 participants, speakers and staff from 76 NCAA member schools came together for two memorable weekends. In addition to learning about best practices for substance abuse prevention within college athletics, participants created inspiring action plans for change. The APPLE Training Institutes continue to be an opportunity for student-athletes and administrators to begin to work collaboratively to create and implement their action plan on their respective campuses. After reading all of the action plan submissions, we thought it would be a great idea to post summary samples online. One participant emailed APPLE to say "A BIG THANK YOU to all of you for an amazing weekend at the APPLE Training Institute. Our APPLE group is, once again, quite grateful for the information you shared and very motivated to begin working on our action plan for next year."
