What Should You 
Expect from A Coach?

At the start of every season, I always think about how I want my players and parents to view me as a coach, and what should they expect from me throughout the season. Like all coaches, I want to serve my players to the best of my ability and provide them with opportunities to grow and develop, but just wanting those things is not enough. There are certain behaviors and qualities of a coach that are required to create that type of competitive learning environment for the players. With this in mind, there are certain things we should all expect from coaches throughout the season.    Read more!

Nutritional Tips for Optimal Athletic Performance

In order for athletes to be able to put 100% into their training, they must properly fuel their body to ensure optimal performance. While specific nutritional needs vary based on gender, weight, height and level of physical activity, the following guideline provides a basic outline for athletes to follow. For a personalized assessment of your athlete's nutritional needs, consider meeting with a sports dietitian, who can create a meal plan tailored to help them achieve their specific nutritional goals.
Before Exercise
Carbohydrates:  Consume 1.0 to 4.0 g/kg of body weight 1-4 hours prior to activity. 
Protein:  1.2 to 1.7 g/kg/day.
Fat :  0% to 35% of total calories, with less than 10% from saturated fat.
During Exercise
Focus on consuming carbohydrates, up to 30-60 g during activities lasting more than an hour, such as soccer.
After Exercise and During Recovery
Focus again on carbohydrates, a 4:1 ratio of protein to carbohydrates within 15-30 minutes after activity. After 30 minutes, an adequate portion of carbohydrates, protein and fat is recommended.
General Hydration Tips   
Athletes should aim to consume at least 16 ounces of fluid (water is sufficient) two hours prior to exercise, and 5 to 10 ounces every 15-20 minutes during activity. Sports drinks are appropriate for endurance activities and stop-and-go sports. Sports drinks consisting of 6%- 8% carbohydrates are recommended.
