Athletics During Online Learning


Hello everyone,
 
During this time of uncertainy, I wanted to reach out to offer an alternative to on-campus athletic programs that will hopefully encourage boys to stay active, have some fun competing with each other, and keep them fit over the coming weeks. With our transition to online learning, it’s important to remember that staying active helps to do several things:
 
  • Increases your energy level
  • Helps you feel more relaxed
  • Enables you to sleep better
  • Can help lift your mood
  • Provides an important outlet to help decrease stress
  • Helps to maintain a healthy state of mind
 
With that in mind, we are excited to announce Catholic Memorial’s upcoming wellness challenge – the Move More Challenge! Registration will begin on Monday, March 23 and the challenge will run from Monday, March 30 through Sunday, May 10.

Any student may join this optional challenge through an online app to focus on your physical activity and compete with your peers, all the while moving your team to the top of the leaderboard. Once you register through the app, please stay tuned for an email from Wellable with your account information and additional challenge details. 

It’s important to note that consistent activity, fitness, and good nutrition are key in helping to boost your immune system and provide an essential outlet away from technology. Please be sure to continue practicing good social distancing and keep a safe distance of 6 feet away from others.

At this time, athletic practices and tryouts have been delayed. The MIAA will continue to be in touch with all members schools if there are any further cancellations.

Jepthe Soulouque and Sam MacNicoll from our great training staff have also put together resources below for student-athletes to keep up training away from CM. These include nutrition recommendations for maintaining a healthy diet and a three-day workout rotation with tutorial videos for each exercise.

We're excited for this challenge to kick off! This is a great way for us to continue to stay healthy at home and keep connected with our tight-knit CM community.
 
All the best,
 
Craig Najarian
Director of Athletics

Nutrition

Here are some important reminders that will help keep you healthy as we adjust during this time:
  • Eating the “rainbow” of fruits and vegetables that are green, blue, orange, red, and yellow is key!
  • Proteins and healthy fats: nuts (walnuts and almonds), seeds (pumpkin, chia, sunflower), beans, legumes, and lean proteins (fish, poultry, steaks)
  • Sleep: 7-9 hours a night (limit blue light from cell phones - this affects sleep quality)
  • Drink at least half your bodyweight in water in ounces (i.e. 200lb athletes should be consuming 100 ounces of water-at least)
