For Coaches and Parents

The Female Athlete Triad Coalition intends to present female athletes and their coaches and parents with the essential educational tools existing in the field of Sports Medicine and Exercise Physiology.  The goal is to improve the presence of disordered eating/energy deficits, menstrual disturbances/amenorrhea, and bone loss/osteoporosis in the female athletic and physically active population.

By drawing attention to the negative pressures and messages related to aesthetics and weight loss in sport and exercise, the available information aims to educate athletes and coaches in all types of sport and physical activity (leanness, endurance, power, etc) from entry to the elite level.  Fundamental definitions, recognizable signs and risk factors are provided in hopes of attaining the necessary understanding of available treatments and preventative measures positively impacting the prevalence and consequences of this condition.
