STOP THE TOURNAMENTS
Too many games, little preparation and no training opportunitiesBy Jay Martin, Ph.D.
Tournaments, tournaments, tournaments. They are overwhelming youth soccer in this country. Everyone wants to play in tournaments. Soccer America has an entire issue devoted to tournaments. Every soccer publication in this country lists pages of tournaments for our children to attend! Every year the biggest decision a club team makes is "which tournaments do we attend?"

Athletes need good nutrition to optimize their performance on the field. Therefore eating heavy greasy foods, such as donuts, hamburgers, fries, cheese, etc... within 3 hours of a soccer game can make players feel sick or sluggish. The body cannot efficiently supply enough energy to digest the greasy foods and for the body to run and play. Also, it important to hydrate the day before as well as before, during, and after the game. Below are some good articles on sports nutrition.The Acid in oranges will upset your stomach
Parents should avoid giving orange slices to their children at half time. Grapes and melons are better on their tummies.
We have our pre-game meal at 2:30 or 3 p.m. and the game starts at 7:00 pm. Are we doing this right?
So far so good, but don't forget the pre-game snack about 2 hours before (around 5:00 p.m.). The snack should be about 250-350 calories, mostly carbohydrates, a little protein, and very little fat. A Power Bar, Boost, a bagel and jam, or cereal and skim milk are each good choices.
Depending on what time breakfast is, the athlete may also want to include a mid-morning snack. Too many athletes rely solely on the one pre-game meal to get them through competition. Optimally, the best fueled athlete is the one who has eaten small meals and snacks every few hours up to 1-1/2 to 2 hours before an event, with decreasing amounts of protein and fat the closer it gets to competition.
Pre-Game Meals/Snacks: Pre-event nutrition can have a major effect on performance. Players diet should be HIGH IN CARBOHYDRATES, LOW IN FAT. The target is 60-70% carbohydrate, 10-15% protein. This is a very important meal as the main energy reserves are made up from the previous days meals, not from the pre-game meal or big breakfast of the competition day.
Eat a Mix of Protein and Carbs after a game
Though exercise is extremely beneficial, it does take a lot of effort on your body's part. After your workout, it's important to repair your muscles and replenish your glycogen stores for energy. Most experts recommend eating something within 90 minutes of finishing your workout, but sooner is better.
Sports & Nutrition
What you eat every day can have a big effect on how you perform. What you eat right before an event can be critical. Wrong choices can be disastrous. Right choices can give you that competitive edge.
SHIN GUARD RASHES
I recently had a player develop a heck of a case of shin guard rash and found a thread on the NC Soccer Forum that listed a number of possible remedies. Obviously if a rash persists you should see a doctor, but there were some very good suggestions from long time soccer parents and coaches about initial treatment, so I figured I’d share them.
