One day this past November, I received a call from one of my female college lacrosse players. For the sake of anonymity and reasons that will be noted later, we will refer to this athlete as "Athlete 1". Athlete 1 was reaching out to me to let me know that she and a few of her teammates would like to train at Overdrive as soon as they finished up with their final exams. After going over specific dates, we figured out that their training cycle would be a solid 6 weeks starting December 11th and ending January 20th.
Getting calls and texts like this from my college athletes is nothing new this time of year, but what happened the next time we spoke is what threw me off.
