Core Committed Presentations FlyerJoin us June 1st,  at 7 p.m. in the Sylvania Southview Theater as we host two former Navy Seals who will share their knowledge on the effects of a healthy lifestyle on peak performance whether your student is an athlete, artist, actor, or scholar. This presentation is part of our Life of an Athlete/Human Performance Project for Sylvania students launched last year.  You’ll also learn about SCAT’s exciting new CORE COMMITTED program beginning in the Sylvania Schools.

“Our prevention model is human kids doing push upsperformance-based and focuses on educating students on the physiological effects of poor lifestyle choices and the specific ways in which these choices directly impact their ability to perform on the sports field, on the stage, in the classroom and, ultimately, in life.

High School students across the nation have proven to us that, given effective tools and good information, they will make good choices. They care about being awesome. Our job is to show them what they can be, and to equip them with the resources to do so.” – former Navy SEAL describing the program

The SEALs will also present that day from 10-11:30 am in the PAC at Northview High School and from 2 – 3:30 pm in the Theater at Southview High School.

Don’t miss this special, one-of-a-kind presentation by two of America’s elite Navy SEALs!

This event is sponsored by SCAT, The Elks, CIC, and Sylvania Schools and is free and open to the public. For additional information contact the SCAT office: dchany@sylvaniaschools.org or 419-824-8588.

 

WHY IS MARIJUANA USE ADDICTIVE?

An important article about the issue of marijuana and addiction from PreventionPlusWellness:

Marijuana use has been shrouded in myth and misconception for centuries.  In our lifetime, this situation is being exacerbated by a growing marijuana industry stemming from the legalization of recreational and medical cannabis use.

The marijuana industry markets cannabis use not just to have fun and socialize, but as part of a hip lifestyle, and to self-medicate everything from anxiety to low energy.  It also portrays cannabis consumption as innocuous and as normal a part of daily life as having a glass of wine with dinner.

One of the more frequently espoused marijuana myths is that its use is not addictive like other drugs.  Others think that addiction from marijuana is possible, but that it is very rare.  Still others think that if marijuana use does become addictive, it’s easy to just stop using it.

Each of these beliefs is incorrect.  Click here to read more…
