The Committed Movement

About Us

The Committed movement blends youth development principles and innovative youth-led environmental prevention strategies. It is also about providing support to students, coaches and parents. The program urges students to renew their commitment to living a life of excellence, a commitment of personal responsibility, shared expectations and collective responsibility. The program addresses lifestyle choices such as sleep, nutrition, training, recovery and educates on how alcohol and other drugs effect their performance academically and athletically.

Stanislaus County Life of an Athlete

Stanislaus County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services have adopted and implemented the Life of An Athlete program. Life of an Athlete is intended to promote our student athletes success in sports and in life by encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Life of an Athlete is based on the research of John Underwood, Director and Founder of the Life of an Athlete - Pure Performance - Human Performance Project, based in Lake Placid, New York. John has worked with Olympic and professional athletes to improve performance for many years. He has consulted extensively with the Navy Seals. John Underwood's research focuses on the sports performance effects of diet and sleep and the negative consequences of athlete use of alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs and prescription drug abuse. Life of an Athlete engages athletes, coaches, parents, and community in promoting excellence in our athletic program and the leadership skills of our athletes.
