Life West’s Sports Performance Institute is set to continue its partnerships with Dew Tour and AVPFirst throughout 2020. Participation in these events gives students hands-on experience dealing with high-level athletes in a variety of different situations.
Life West students planned to be on-site at the winter and summer Dew Tour events. The winter Dew Tour was in February in Colorado, and the summer Dew Tour in California has been rescheduled to September 10-13, 2020. Dew Tour holds competitions for the world’s best skateboarders, snowboarders and skiers, and is recognized as one of the top extreme sports circuits in the country.
AVPFirst is welcoming Life West students to six of its events this season, including the National Championship and All-American Finals this summer and Gold Tour events in Chicago and Honolulu in September. AVPFirst is the signature youth volleyball program and the national pipeline for the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour.
The Sports Performance Institute educates aspiring chiropractors on how to provide care to athletes and help ensure peak levels of performance. SPI Coordinator Scott Lessard, DC, is a faculty member at Life West.
