Did the CIF just ban protein supplements?

| Comments (1) | TrackBacks (21) |
I'm looking at California Interscholastic Federation bylaw 22.B.12, just passed May 6. It reads:
An athletic director, sports coach, school official or employee or booster club/support group member may provide only nonmuscle-building nutritional supplements to a studentathlete at any time for the purpose of providing additional calories and electrolytes. A school may only accept a sponsorship or donation from a supplement manufacturer that offer only nonmuscle-building nutritional supplements in their product line. Permissible nonmuscle-building nutritional supplements are identified according to the following classes: Carbohydrate/electrolyte drinks, energy bars, carbohydrate boosters and vitamins and minerals.

Forget about whether you think it's appropriate for the CIF to be trying to stop people from providing student-athletes with creatine. Doesn't this list exclude protein supplements, which are a standard training procedure and extremely safe (i.e., they're food!)?

A school may only accept a sponsorship or donation from a supplement manufacturer that offer only nonmuscle-building nutritional supplements in their product line.

So not only may a school not provide protein supplements, it may not accept sponsorships from makers of protein supplements, even if the sponsorship is in the name of a non-protein supplement.
