Life of an Athlete is expected to lead to changes in the school climate and behaviors among the student body. Program activities include: revision of student codes of conduct to support healthy lifestyle choices; policy changes that encourage positive behavior among the athletic community; youth leadership training to develop team unity; and student athlete, coach, parent, and community education on the impact of lifestyle choices and how to make healthier ones. All of these activities are designed to support student behavior changes which focus on proper nutrition, adequate sleep and abstinence from substance use.
