PHOENIX, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Calling all sideline parents, sports fans and athletes – your favorite youth or high school sports team could win the chance to elevate their game to the next level, thanks to Rockin' Refuel, protein-fortified chocolate milk, and the natural sports recovery beverage. In conjunction with ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas, the brand is launching a nationwide search for the "Most Rockin" team. One lucky youth or high school sports team will win a fantasy camp training weekend with the pros at St. Vincent Sports Performance, a premier sports performance facility that has trained more than 300 professional and Olympic athletes.
"In my experience as a coach, a sports analyst and a dad, I have the opportunity to see teams of all kinds as they train and compete," said Jay Bilas, ESPN analyst and Rockin' Refuel spokesman. "What separates the good from the great is not necessarily raw athletic talent, it's also dedication, discipline and training regimen." Bilas will lend his sports expertise to help select the winning team.
Visit RockinRefuel.com to enter your favorite youth or high school team – whether you're a fan or player – and share why your team deserves to train with the pros. The contest is open to athletes 14-18 years old who participate in any type of team sport.
The experts at St. Vincent Sports Performance will put the winning team through a training regimen worthy of Olympic stars and professional standouts. From performance training including strength, conditioning, mobility and agility workouts, to sports nutrition counseling and sessions on mental toughness – the fantasy camp is sure to escalate the team to the next level. "Our comprehensive approach to sports training is top-notch, and equally important to how we train is how we teach our clients how to refuel after a workout," said Lindsay Langford, MS, RD, CCSD, sports nutrition expert at St. Vincent. "We are happy to partner with Rockin Refuel, the premier muscle recovery beverage we provide our top athletes."
The Ultimate Discovery In Muscle Recovery
Rockin' Refuel is a first-of-its'-kind natural protein-fortified, low-fat chocolate milk that helps athletes' muscles recover after exercise. It has 20 grams of protein to refuel athletes with the great taste and essential nutrients only 100 percent real milk can provide. With naturally-occurring electrolytes, it is also an excellent source of nine essential nutrients your body needs, including calcium, vitamin D and potassium.

Available in chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, the 12 oz. on-the-go bottles retail for the suggested retail prize of $1.59 and are available in major retail and convenience store locations.
