As you have already seen, Catholic High is committed to continuing the mission/vision of the school (Acta Non Verba) by providing excellent online learning for all our students. As an athletic department, we, too, are following suit.

I want to personally invite you to join a free webinar on Tuesday, March 31st, at 7:00 PM central time. The title of the webinar is “How to improve the Eating Habits of High School Athletes.” The webinar will discuss:

Why Nutrition is Your Missing Link to Optimize Performance
Understand the Challenges Young Athletes Face with their Nutrition
Learn 5 Habits of Highly Successful Athletes
Strategies to help Athletes and Parents Solve a Problem and Eating Puzzle

We are honored to have Tavis Piattoly, MS, RD, LDN Sports Dietitian host this webinar for us. He is a good friend of both Coach Biz (Catholic High Head Athletic Trainer) and me, and we are grateful for his time and effort in offering an excellent opportunity for our athletic community.

I want to thank Coach Biz for the foresight in providing our athletes with this opportunity amid the turmoil. It was her hard work and diligence that got this idea off the ground. Finally, I want to thank Iberia Sports and Rehabilitation, who is a valued provider of Catholic High School. Their efforts made it possible to receive this excellent information and resource.
