Effective Nutrition Support Programs For College Athletes


Videotaped lectures have been a standard in university and professional courses for the last two decades (Moore & Lockee, 1998). Audiotapes and lessons sent through the mail have been used in correspondence courses to teach subjects such as foreign language for quite some time (Teaster & Blieszner, 1999). Today, the Internet and compressed video have taken distance learning in new directions, allowing distance learning to occur in real time. Live video instruction is the most popular and fastest growing delivery mode in the United States .

So while a few athletes would benefit financially, a greater number of students would see their athletic opportunities disappear. We're far more savvy today about concussions and the long-term effects of chronic traumatic encephalopathy . A 2017 study found that 91% of former college football players who had died had CTE, a degenerative brain disease linked to dementia.

If through drama they can act out positive attitudes, or through dance they can be taught movements that help them express expansiveness, then they’re learning in a way that’s appropriate to that level of development. They can be shown those kinds of physical gestures that come with selfishness, for example and those that come with being generous and kind. This can be done in an amusing way so that it’s a game, and they can learn by imitation. We deeply need proper training in “how-to-live” skills such as how to find the right mate, how to raise our children, how to be a good employee, how to get along with our neighbors, and how to concentrate our minds so that we can draw success into all our endeavors. There are many such skills that are essential to prepare a child for adulthood, and in traditional education many of them are completely ignored. Education for Life is a system that prepares the child to face the challenges of living as a human being, and helps him to achieve balance and harmony in all he does.

Athletes constantly risk injury and therefore deserve proper compensation. A seriously injured athlete could lose their scholarship , jeopardize their opportunity to play professionally and potentially earn millions, or even face lifelong disability if the damage is permanent. The rest are termed "equivalency sports," which receive lump sums that are allocated among players according to a coach's determination. These scholarships, which aren't guaranteed, are awarded year to year and can be rescinded for numerous reasons, including injuries. All told, only about 1% of student-athletes receive a full scholarship. Everyone is making money off college athletics — except the players.
