Promoting Student-Athlete Wellness and Substance Abuse Prevention

2017 NCAA Division II APPLE Training Institute

Saint Edward's APPLE Team

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 NCAA Division II APPLE Training Institute will be held September 22-24, 2017, in Reston, Virginia.  The Institute is limited to 40 institutions that selected through a conference nomination process.  Conferences may nominate up to two institutions and are due by Wednesday, March 15 to Lisa Rogers,  Institutions will be notified of their selection by Monday, April 17.  Please see our FAQ page to learn more.
