John Underwood's "The Life of an Athlete" Showing on the Dublin City Channel
John Underwood, the President of the American Athletic Institute and trainer of Olympic athletes, spoke with high school athletes at our three Dublin high schools last October.  The PERC program, focusing on the effects of alcohol and drug use on athletic performance, was taped and DVDs were given to all three high schools and all four middle schools.  The Dublin Library has three copies and the City of Dublin, thanks to Amy Salay and Rick Gerber, chose to air the presentation given to our athletes at Dublin Coffman High School on October 22, 2008.  PURE PERFORMANCE...THE KEY TO YOUR SUCCESS is showing on the Dublin City Channel on the following dates and times:

- Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11 a.m., noon, 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.
- Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 11 a.m., noon, 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

John Underwood also presented to the community a program called "The Life of an Athlete...Parenting Your Athlete," and to coaches and advisors "Confronting Chemical Health Issues on your TEAM."  The three presentations are all available on DVD and can be viewed by contacting the following people:
