Life of an Athlete Explores Culture of Underage Drinking

6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October  25 at Green Bay West High School

Join us at 6:30 PM at Green Bay West High School (966 Shawano Ave.) for this important parent session. Life of an Athlete is free and open to the public.

Alcohol remains the most used and abused drug in America. Unfortunately, many of the users and abusers are high school students. Life of an Athlete is a program that joins athletes, parents, and coaches to advocate the non-use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.

John Underwood will discuss how to recognize the nature and extent of chemical use among athletes/students; the impact of alcohol and drug use on athlete performance; how to share a concern about chemical use with students; strategies to prevent chemical use; and more.

The event will touch base on the culture of underage drinking and promote a culture of positive peer pressure by learning some of the latest research and initiatives from Dr. John Underwood of the American Athletic Institute. 

This is not a “Just Say No” presentation, rather it is the first step in actively empowering our student-athletes, parents, community and coaches to make a change.

Life of an Athlete was developed by John Underwood, President and Founder of The American Athletic Institute (AAI). Mr. Underwood is a former NCAA-All American distance runner and World Masters Champion. An athlete all his life, John has been an Olympic level coach, teacher, trainer and scientist, and is a crusader for drug-free sports.
