Teen Boot Camp is for teen athletes with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) and their parents/guardians. It is a unique and amazing opportunity for teens to learn how to manage their blood sugars on and off the field, meet other teens just like them and have fun! Dr. Matt Corcoran and his phenomenal team of physicians and experts from all over the country deliver clinical, nutrition and mental skills learning and figness training. Teens and parents have combined sessions as well as their own sessions to achieve their individual goals.

Our incredible and highly-qualified team of experts includes pediatric and adult diabetes specialists, an exercise physiologist, registered dietitians and CDEs (Certified Diabetes Educators), a mental skills coaches and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. This team delivers an immersive and intensive program to facilitate open and healthy communication between teens and their parents/support systems, and vice versa, in order to set up the teenager to work toward and meet their health and performance goals.

Teen Boot Camp will help teen athletes manage their T1D during sports and help them take their performance to the next level while helping parents better understand their ability to help their teen athletes meet their goals. Teens and parents will share, learn and receive support from experts as well as their peers who are facing similar challenges and questions. An amazing community and bond will develop that will last a lifetime.

NOTE: Teens under 18 MUST attend with at least 1 parent or guardian.

Workouts will be challenging, informational and geared toward practicing strategies for diabetes management to help athletes excel. Parents will have the opportunity to share, learn and support their teen in parent-only lectures and family lectures, as well as on the field. Teens will be surrounded by peers who are facing the same challenges and questions, thereby creating a community and bond that will last long after camp wraps up.
