ATLAS and ATHENA Program this Week!

Each year, DanversCARES works with the Athletic Office of the Danvers Public Schools to run the Atlas and Athena program. It is a mentor program run by upper class student athletes for incoming freshmen athletes. Junior and Senior Squad Leaders are trained to facilitate discussions with younger athletes on positive choices. Proper diet, adequate sleep, and good sportsmanship make for an outstanding athlete.  Students also discuss how to avoid negative influences, such as drug use or binge dieting that may negatively affect their athletic performance. Program evaluation shows participating students are more aware of the dangers of drug use and are more likely not to use.

 

For Fall 2017 Attendees:

Who: All Freshman Fall Athletes

When: September 18th through 22nd from 2:00-2:40

Where: Vye Gym, Danvers High School

This program is optional, students will not be penalized for not attending, however we hope everyone makes the time to participate in this fantastic opportunity!
