Nutrition Speaker Series
(this is a team hosted event)
VPSC Speaker Series - Nutrition
We are very excited to announce that we have made a partnership with the Canadian Sport Institute - Pacific.
VPSC will be hosting a series of talks with Genevieve Masson, who is a Sports Dietician for CSI-Pacific. We have asked Genevieve to not just provide Nutrtional information to the swimmers, but to also include the PARENTS so that we can have a positive influence on the nutritional needs for the athletes both at the pool and at home.
Throughout the remainder of the season, Genevieve will host talks to specific groups within the club so that they can be geared towards the age groups of the athletes within each group. The schedule in the Events page will be updated as the dates for each of the talks are finalized.
This will be the final Nutrition Talk for the season and it will be held Saturday, June 23rd. This final talk will be centered on enhancing nutrition strategies around competition and refueling between days of intense racing. The Swimmers will have their seminar from 9:00-10:00am, prior to their workout in the water, while the Parents will have their seminar from 10:00-11:00am. All talks will be held in the Classroom of the UBC Aquatic Centre.
All High Performance, Senior Provincial and Senior Regional Swimmers are welcome to attend the seminar for the swimmers. Parents are asked to sign-up online.
Thanks for your support and we look forward to offering this enhanced programming that will enable our swimmers to become better all-around athletes and learn how they can be more productive in and out of the water.
