B-BP District Chosen for National Female Athlete Pilot Program

The goal is about awareness and education regarding the health of women athletes.

The Bayport-Blue Point School District is one of five Long Island districts selected to participate in a unique program focused on helping improve the health of female athletes.

The think. eat. play. is a program sponsored by the national non-profit organization, NORMAL, that provides awareness and education about the Female Athlete Triad, a serous health problem, connecting restrictive eating behavior to menstrual disturbances, which in turn leads to weak bones and other lifelong health and performance complications.

The program will address key issues such as nutrition, body image, and stress management.

B-BP Athletic Director Tim Mullins said the district is excited to be participating.

”We are looking forward to working with think.eat.play. The health, safety, and overall well-being of our students’ athletes are paramount. We are optimistic that this partnership will provide our student body with pertinent information that will lead to a better and more productive lifestyle.”

That is great news! Where can we find more information on this program? I being a mother of 3 young girls growing up in BBP, would love to get involved!

I'm sure Tim Mullins, the AD would love to hear from people interested in being involved. He's always responsive so I'd just call him at 472-7860.
