Protein drink/bar for immediately after session. (There is cellular damage after any kind of exercise. As a result, there is an increased breakdown of protein during exercise. This damage is structural, and the body's structural building materials are proteins.)
Hydration– Remember to properly hydrate the night before and during the day before each session. For athletes, fluids should be taken throughout the day no matter what the level of physical activity. At least 16 ounces of fluid should be taken two to three hours before practice or a game. Another 8 ounces should be taken about 10 to 20 minutes before practice or a game.
Sleep/Rest– Get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep each night. Being well rested will help you be better prepared to work out and will aid in your recovery after each workout.
Thanks to the on-going grassroots efforts by the local community and the Cougar Touchdown Club, plans are in motion to begin construction on the new Press Box this spring! We anticipate the project being complete by 7/1/15 just in time for the 2015 season. We have SIX home games on the schedule this year so it’s critical that we continue to raise funds for this project. Through the support of local businesses and individuals we have raised nearly $50,000 in the last nine months but are still short of our goal.
Please donate now to the Press Box Construction Project!
You may send checks made out to the Cougar Touchdown Club to: P.O. Box 2422, Evergreen, CO 80437 or you may donate online through our dedicated Press Box PayPal account below.
We have also installed a Donor Wall in the main hall of the high school for donations that are at least $125, for details regarding the Cougar, Cougar Silver, Cougar Gold and Cougar Platinum nameplates please click on the Paperwork/Forms tab in the left side blue column of this website.
