  The other is when each sport in different seasons have to give the athletes a week of before the season starts, and it’s mandatory.

  “It’s to give the kids a time away from the sport, before the long enduring season,” said coach Phillips.

  For some athletes this dead period is an amazing thing for them and they really enjoy it.

  “ I love dead week because it lets me spend time with my friends and plus I really need a vacation,” Junior Noah JennerJohn said.
