New Hampshire has a comprehensive prevention program developed by Olympic Trainer John Underwood called Life of an Athlete (LoA). It takes a proactive approach to improving school climate by coordinating all aspects of high schools, including coaches, athletic directors, administrators, parents, communities, prevention professionals, and athletes themselves.
The program offers many tools and resources on training, leadership, nutrition, prevention basics, parent resources, and more. LoA is evolutionary and ongoing. The program components can be implemented in the order that best meets the needs and readiness of the school community.
