Let’s Go Mountaineers! Fall 2012 marks the inagural year of West Virginia University in the Big 12 Conference. Not only does this mean a more competitive conference for WVU, it also means longer travel times by bus and by airplane. If athletes aren’t careful about maintaining hydration status, eating healthy foods on the road, and getting adequate sleep, their athletic performance can be negatively affected. Roanna Martin and I were responsible for making 5 bulletin boards that cover important tips to remember when traveling, in order for athletes to compete at their best level. These bulletin boards will be posted in different sports teams’ strength and conditioning rooms, such as swimming, diving, and volleyball. I’ve rearranged the information into a Powerpoint for easier viewing. Check it out!
