US Military Endurance Sports

USMES University

The US Military Endurance Sports (USMES) University program was introduced to support endurance sports education and educational activities for USMES members and teams.  Partnering with top tier coaches, athletes, and members to provide a structured and organic approach to nutrition, health, exercise, and training for our active and Veteran servicemembers team mates.  Below is a sampling of some of the free benefits provided to USMES members.

Education Library

USMES University offers omembers a growing education library with information about competing, nutrition, healthy lifestyle choices, tactics, and much more.  We mentor by connecting our top amateur and elite athletes with beginner and intermediates.  The Facebook and community pages offer an excellent feedback forum and continued advice on library articles, videos, and other forms of media.  Your Regional Coordinator is also a great resource for connecting members with expert advice and resources within and external to USMES.

Webinars

USMES University also offers free webinars on a variety of endurance sport related topics, to include but not limited to nutrition, sport psychology, racing techniques, and more.  After each webinar, an open Q&A forum is conducted with continuation discussions on social media and community forums.  Member discussions following webinar are very popular for those willing to share their race experience and ask for assistance on the webinar topics.

Education Courses

USMES University has partnered with endurance coaches, sports experts, area professionals, and companies like United Endurance Sports Coaching Academy (UESCA) to offer members an opportunity to take free endurance sports education courses.  These non-credited courses are offered in written form for online, distance learning-style formatting.  Future plans are in work to offer these courses to members via interactive, computer based training platforms.  Additionally, there are available options to take third-party courses through companies like UESCA for USAC and USAT Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and credits.
