This week’s blog post features Christine Karpinski, PhD, RD, CSSD, LDN and Susan Kundrat, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN. Their session is titled: “Small School Sports Nutrition: Keys to Developing a Sustainable Sports Nutrition Program.” This presentation will provide a 'blueprint' that includes tangible models, protocols and tools to develop a collegiate sports nutrition services program on a limited budget. Examples of tools offered include practice protocols, budget and proposal development, negotiations, and programming recommendations. Expanded and updated data on the state of small school sports nutrition programs will be presented in addition to new UWM athlete data. Participants will leave this presentation with the knowledge and tools necessary to not only provide nutrition services to programs on a limited budget, but to sustain and grow programs into a full-time position. The greatest opportunities for sports nutrition programming for SCAN members are at the small Division I, Division II, and Division III member schools because of the great number of athletes and athletic programs.
