Today, April 6, is National Student Athlete Day. The recognition was created in 1987 by the NCAS (National Consortium for Academics and Sports) and is celebrated annually on April 6. It was designed to honor outstanding achievements of high school and college student-athletes who have achieved excellence in academics and athletics, while having made significant contributions to their schools and communities. To be honored, student-athletes must have achieved a 3.0+ GPA and be involved in outreach and community service. Since 1987 more than 4.1 million student-athletes have been honored on National Student Athlete Day.
Our team at Therafirm, makers of TheraSport and Core-Sport Athletic Compression Socks and Sleeves, would like to congratulate all of the 2016 honorees, as well as those that have been honored in the past. We know that excelling at sports, while also maintaining high grades and being involved in the community takes a special kind of dedicated person – one we know will go on to succeed in life beyond their high school and college athletic careers. It may not always be to play their sport professionally, but their hard work and dedication will pay off in whatever career they move on to.
We encourage you to continue your efforts in achieving great things in the academic world, as well as sports, and we hope that our products will help you to achieve your goals!
All of Therafirm’s athletic compression socks and sleeves feature true gradient compression, which is a controlled amount of pressure greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases toward the calf. True gradient compression helps to improve blood flow from the ankle to the heart, improving oxygenation in the blood and enhancing your workout. Other benefits include: increased energy for endurance, better performance, reduced muscle fatigue, and shorter recovery time after a workout.
