Teach Your Athletes' 30 Healthy Habits Proven to Boost Their Athletic Performance!
An athlete can train hard, try their best, and have amazing talent, but if they fuel their body with junky foods...
...they will feel fatigue more quickly
...they will have a weakened immune system
...they will have a harder time concentrating in the classroom & at practice
...they will be more at risk for injuries
...and above all, they will NEVER reach their athletic potential
Sadly, sports nutrition is often the elephant in the room that coaches shy away from.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Teaching young athletes how to properly fuel their bodies should be at the top of the to-do list for coaches.
That doesn’t mean putting your athletes on a “diet”; it doesn’t mean making certain foods “off-limits”; what it DOES MEAN is teaching kids how to incorporate basic healthy habits into their active lifestyle.
The reality is that most youth athletes (& their parents) simply do NOT know how to properly fuel their body. They don’t understand that what they eat impacts their performance. They don’t know how making the wrong nutrition choices impacts their ability to excel in their sport.
Here at the ACA we believe that all youth athletes need basic sports nutrition education.
Our 30 Day Sports Nutrition Challenge was designed to achieve this goal.
Our 30 Day Challenge is designed to help youth athletes develop an awareness of how nutrition impacts their performance in both sports and the classroom.
Each day, athletes will be given a nutrition “challenge” to complete. The challenges range from eating a balanced breakfast to finding a healthy pre-practice snack at a convenience store!
Our goal is to empower athletes to make healthy choices because they know how it will impact their performance, NOT because their coach or parent is telling them what to eat.
Our 30 Day Challenge is NOT a diet.
This is an introduction to healthy eating habits that will serve youth athletes well throughout their entire life.
We encourage parents, coaches, and athletes to embark on this challenge together!
