Come Back Stronger Webinar Series Recap

As part of our efforts to educate and communicate with our high school athletic associations and the 15,000+ high school coaches that represent these organizations within our territory, American Dairy Association North East put together the 3-part Come Back Stronger webinar series. This webinar series took place over the first three weeks in September and focused on relevant and timely topics for coaches to address with their student athletes as they return back to sports, even if it’s just for practice and training, and not necessarily games or competitions at this time. Topics included “Safe Return to Training and Sports in High School Athletes,” “Getting Real About Sports Nutrition for High School Athletes,” and “Hydration Tactics to Fuel High School Athletes.

These webinars were presented by members of our Sports Nutrition Advisory Panel. There were 149 total registrants with many others watching the recordings on demand at their own convenience. Of those that registered, on average, they engage with 28,477 high school student athletes on a monthly basis.

In total, nine lucky attendees were selected to win the raffle prizes which included a Refuel with Chocolate Milk branded weight room cooler for their school along with a $500 gift card to stock it with chocolate milk.

Please see below information for the on-demand webinar links, slide decks and handouts.
