dc.description.abstractMany high school football players are experimenting with advertised “performance enhancing” supplements. Many of these athletes turn to their coaches for questions and advice regarding supplements. Purpose: The purpose of this project is to learn the opinions of Kansas high school football coaches regarding sport supplement use in high school football players. Methods: An email survey was sent out to all Kansas high school football coaches regarding their knowledge and recommendations of supplement use in their athletes. Results: 53% of the coaches thought supplements were beneficial to a high school athlete, 32% were neutral, and 15 % either disagreed or strongly disagreed. 80% of the coaches were aware of their athletes taking supplements. 72% of coaches recommended supplement use to their athletes. 70% stated they had received educational material regarding supplement use in high school athletes. 90% were interested in receiving information regarding sport supplement education in high school aged athletes if available. Conclusion: A wide degree of variation exists between different coaches and their thoughts and opinions regarding supplement use in high school football players.en
