Abstract

EVERY ATHLETE WANTS TO GAIN A LEG UP ON THE COMPETITION, AND HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES ARE NO DIFFERENT. SUPPLEMENTS AND RECOVERY DRINKS ARE POPPING UP EVERYWHERE, AND SO ARE PEOPLE'S THEORIES ABOUT THEM. MANY HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES HAVE ACCESS TO, AND USE, SUCH SUPPLEMENTS AS RECOVERY DRINKS. MANY HIGH SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS ARE FEARFUL OF ANY SUBSTANCE THAT COULD BE INVOLVED IN ANY FORM OF LITIGATION AND ARE HESITANT TO SEE THEM USED IN A SCHOOL SETTING.
