Coaches working with young athletes
Working with young people requires a huge commitment of your time and energy. For varying reasons Sports Nutrition may not be high on your list of priorities when trying to organise your team events for a variety of reasons:
Limited access to a sports Dietitian in your region and/ or you lack of time and resources to find one may hamper your progress in team development.
Perceptions of limited value or scarce resources may push sports nutrition to the bottom of your list of priorities right now as you struggle within a limited budget. You may prefer to cover the topic yourself.
Working with children of all ages is a challenge because exercise competes with the energy that they require for physical growth and mental functioning.
Good nutrition can give your team (or athlete) the winning edge so contact us for ideas on how you can improve the nutrition of individuals or the team as a whole.
