Sleep Tactics for Better Performance Education Session
Amy Bender, MS, PhD
Optimal sleep is critical for health and considered one of the most potent performance enhancers available. During sleep, many processes take place including repairing and rebuilding muscle, and the pruning and forming of new memories. For an athlete, sub-optimal sleep can lead to impaired mood, shorter time to exhaustion, poor nutrition choices, and greater injury risk. We will discuss the importance of making sure athletes get sufficient quantity, quality and timing of sleep – so they can perform better on and off the field.
Saturday, March 14: 9 - 10 a.m.
