Nutrition program update
One of the initiatives of the Booster Club this year was to provide some education and tools regarding nutrition for the athletes. It is clear that for athletes to perform their best, an appropriate diet of nutritious food is a must. There is a plethora of nutrition information available but it was felt that a coherent framework was missing and there were certainly mixed messages being received by the athletes and parents.
After reviewing detailed research that had been completed over the last year or so from a couple of parents on the topic; Dr. Mark Adams of Onvo was approached to develop a pilot program for the Bellevue Club Swim Team in conjuntion with the Bellevue Club Wellness Program and USA swimming.
The first of 3 Nutritional meetings will begin next week.
