What do Carli Lloyd and Neymar eat after a game? Cupcakes and candy? Definitely not. What do youth athletes eat after a game? Cupcakes and candy? Maybe? And how much physical activity do youth athletes get during a typical 60-minute practice? 60 minutes? Nope. 45 minutes? Surprisingly, probably not.  This interactive and informative session will equip coaches with the tools to implement simple changes at trainings and games to support healthy habits among their players. Focusing on athletes aged 5 to 12, we’ll discuss age-appropriate ideas for encouraging good nutrition and hydration, ways to keep players moving during practices, and provide simple ways to get parents and even concession stand staff on board. Healthy Kids Out of School has developed the free Coaching Healthy Habits online training that is helping coaches across the country create a healthy youth sports environment.
