For Coaches

This section is a miscellaneous set of resources that is more detailed than those provided in the other sections of the website. For example, links 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, and 11 lead to position statements from the NATA, which give detailed expositions about guidelines regarding certain issues and the reasons for which those guidelines have been adopted. They come complete with extensive references to studies backing up the use of whichever guideline is being described.
If you, as a coach, think you would benefit from learning about an illness or medical problem not covered below, or if you have any other content suggestions, email Marcella Babcock at m.babcock@runnels.org.

We want to keep the website updated and relevant.
