Sleep tactics for better athlete health and performance

Optimal sleep is critical for health and is considered one of the most potent performance enhancers available. During sleep, many processes take place including repairing and rebuilding muscle, enhancing immune function, and the pruning and forming of new memories. For an athlete, sub-optimal sleep can lead to impaired mood, shorter time to exhaustion, poor nutrition choices, and greater injury risk. Sleep Scientist Amy Bender, MS, PhD will discuss the role of the athletic trainer and sports health practitioners to ensure athletes get sufficient quantity, quality and timing of sleep – so athletes can perform better on and off the field. 

Course Objectives

  • Define what constitutes good sleep including optimal sleep quantity, quality, and timing of sleep. 
  • Dispel sleep myths for yourself and translate that knowledge into sleep education for your athletes in a meaningful way 
  • Implement sleep screening strategies and identification of maladaptive sleep behaviors such in the athletes you are working with 
  • Implement other sleep strategies including “banking sleep” and napping
