Promoting Student-Athlete Wellness and Substance Abuse Prevention

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.
