Improving and enhancing the overall well-being of today’s collegiate student-athletes is a focal point and supported by the NCAA as well as conferences and institutions. Nutrition plays a vital role in the health and overall “fitness” of student-athletes, and has been bolstered by the NCAA’s deregulation of the restrictions on student-athlete meals and nutrition. Fueling stations and snack areas are commonplace now in training venues and supplement the student-athlete’s daily nutritional needs.
“With the recent emphasis on sports nutrition, the Atlantic 10’s partnership with Come Ready Nutrition has been beneficial to our member institutions and our student-athletes,” states Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade.
“Pat Cavanaugh is a leader in this field and has grown CRONS at a very impressive rate. We are most appreciative of his company’s donation to our all of member schools,” adds McGlade.
Come Ready Nutrition, a Pittsburgh-based manufacturer founded by former Pitt basketball player Pat Cavanaugh, has been a leader in the industry and has partnered with the Atlantic 10 Conference to assist with improving the nutritional needs of student-athletes. The company strengthened its partnership this past fall with the donation of portable Fueling Stations for each of the 14 A-10 member schools, along with the donation of protein products, powder and other nutritional products.
“Our partnership with the A-10 is important to me personally because of my respect for Commissioner McGlade, and it’s important to our team at Ready Nutrition as the conference has made sports nutrition a priority for its student-athletes. We wanted to support that effort by providing Fueling Stations to each Atlantic 10 member fully stocked with products ranging from gluten-free items to vegan options to all-natural protein water," said Cavanaugh. "Today, student-athletes are aware more than ever of the benefits from clean, healthy eating and we’re excited to support the efforts of the A-10 to provide their student athletes with cutting edge products."
