Parent and Athlete Education Series
We are delighted to have hosted two speakers this Fall who presented to all student-athletes during dryland programming:
Devin Delaney: November 1, 4-6 PM
"Nutrition Basics to Optimize Performance"
Devin Delaney is a Nutritional Therapist, Certified Personal Trainer, former US Ski Team member, 4 Time NCAA All American, and avid outdoor adventurist living in Teton Valley. Through her ski racing career and experience coaching U10-FIS athletes, Devin knows firsthand how important proper nutrition is to performance. In her opinion, it is the most neglected and the most impactful component of an athlete’s health, energy, mood & overall physical performance. Devin’s goal is to elevate youth through nutrition education—as strong and healthy bodies allow us to follow our passions and crush our goals whatever they may be.

Lexie Drechsel: September 27, 5-6:30 PM
"Injury Prevention for the Winter Sport Athlete"
Doctor of Physical Therapy, USSA-200 alpine coach, and an avid skier, Lexie Drechsel will discuss the importance of dryland training and conditioning to help you have your best season yet & stay injury free! Presentation will be followed by Q&A and a review of foundational exercises for the winter sport athlete.
Additionally, the SAS and athletic Program Directors are excited to pilot a Clubwide series of weekly Mental training sessions this fall, covering topics including goal setting, mindfulness and visualization in sport, growth mindset, and how to foster healthy sport community. Topics will be announced on your team calendar, so keep an eye out from mid September–November. We are excited to use the fall dryland sessions to build Clubwide community through sport education.
