Virtual Training: Alcohol, Cannabis, & Team Success
This is a virtual training on Alcohol, Marijuana, and Athletic Team Success, facilitated by a Gordie Center APPLE Athletics staff member. This training lasts 1 hour, and the cost includes a brief consultation to tailor the training for your audience.
Student-athletes are more likely to experience harm related to alcohol use compared to their non-athlete peers. However, many student-athletes are unaware that alcohol and marijuana can negatively impact athletic performance. Through an interactive presentation using audience response technology, the presenter(s) will review the performance impacts of alcohol and marijuana use, including aerobic capacity, immune response, and injury recovery. The latest NCAA research on student-athlete substance use norms, and considerations for adapting social norms-based interventions will be addressed.
Please fill out the APPLE Athletics Program Request form, and an APPLE Athletics staff member will contact you to discuss pricing and options.
January 2021 APPLE Training Institutes Cancelled
We regret to inform you that the association-wide 2020-21 APPLE Training Institute events scheduled for January 22-23, 2021 in the Washington, DC area have been cancelled due to the uncertainty around the timing of return to campus activities as well as other financial and resource impacts of COVID-19 on NCAA and institutional operations. This decision was made in collaboration with the NCAA Sport Science Institute and the University of Virginia's Gordie Center, which operates the APPLE Training Institute.
Thank you for your understanding of this decision. The NCAA and the Gordie Center remain committed to the importance of providing effective intervention programming and we look forward to providing future engagement opportunities to support student-athlete substance misuse prevention.
