Thanks to all the athletes and parents who participated in the Nutrition class tonight. I hope everyone learned something and took home some good information that will help you in making the correct food and hydration choices. It is very important as athletes that you give your body the fuel it needs so you can train and compete to the best of your ability.
The goal this season is to eat exercise for at least 30 minutes 5 days a week, eat 5 fruits and veggies a day and drink 5 16oz of water a day.
Always “Think Before You Drink”! Try not to hydrate with drinks that contain a lot of sugar.
Parents are encouraged to participate by filling out the 2019 Season Tracker and turning it in every week with the athletes. Depending on the parent participation we may just have a “Parent of the Month” award!
