Head coaches and Athletic Directors from Lake and N. Cook Counties came together in November to learn more about helping student athletes reach their maximum potential, both on and off the field. John Underwood, former NCAA All-American runner, coach of Olympic champions, and consultant for the US Navy Seals shared his expertise and insight on how to train, inspire, and guide young athletes to perform at the peak of their ability. Topics covered included sleep, nutrition, specific training exercises, and leading a healthy drug and alcohol-free lifestyle. The innovative and informative clinic on how to stay competitive and keep athletes performing at the top of their game was sponsored by the Link Together Coalition and the Lake County Opioid Initiative.
