The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) now has a course available entitled Health and Wellness: A Coach's Guide to Hydration, Nutrition and Supplements.
The course is available at www.nfhslearn.com.
Adolescents are particularly susceptible to aggressive marketing, dieting fads and nutrition myths. Students spend a lot of time and energy working out and playing sports, but they often don't think about what they eat and drink. Proper hydration and nutrition can optimize athletic performance.
This NFHS course will provide practical tips on how a coach can model and teach proper hydration and nutrition.
