Abstract
  • The transition from high school (HS) to college can prove to be a difficult one for many HS students. In becoming acclimated within the academic and social realm of a college experience the individual is offered an opportunity to develop many lifestyle habits such as diet, sleep and most notably physical activity (PA) 1. Most attention addressing health concerns is placed on health indicators attuned to the college environment. However valid, such reasoning overlooks that in 2007 only 18% of 9-12th graders met the 60-minute recommendation for PA2. It also looks over the reality that sedentary behavior increases with the age of the adolescent 3. Youth athletes provide a unique opportunity in developing healthy eating habits and sustainable levels of PA, since they are often predisposed to unhealthier eating habits in HS due to their high levels of PA. As a result, a youth athlete may experience new health challenges when entering college as a traditional student, where structured PA is no longer a part of their daily life.
