Promoting Student-Athlete Wellness and Substance Abuse Prevention

2020-2021 APPLE Training Institutes Cancelled

2020-21 APPLE Training Institutes Cancelled

We regret to inform you that the association-wide 2020-21 APPLE Training Institute events scheduled for October 9-11, 2020, in Orlando, Florida and 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 Gordie Center, which operates the APPLE Training Institute – an annual three-day training workshop for NCAA membership student-athletes, athletics administrators and campus partners to develop institution-specific substance misuse prevention plans.

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.
