On the 14th February 2018, we were joined by the inspirational performance nutritionist Ben Coomber for a nutrition webinar on the importance of autonomy for young athletes.
In nutrition we are good at giving out plans and guidance, but what about information and empowerment? Ben believes young and developing athletes need autonomy for a successful career. In this webinar, we discussed what strategies you can use to develop that. Ultimately, an athlete still wants to live their life, but also perform at a high level. Ben explains, they can do both, with a little bit of the right education.
- Practical strategies for coaching and developing young athletes
- Awareness of issue we face in nutrition coaching
- Balance for the young athlete.
