Helping young athletes use smart nutrition practices is the focus of a new program series from ISU Extension for coaches, teachers and athletic directors. Five two-hour sessions will be offered in January and February. The Eat to Compete sessions can be used for coaching reauthorization, teaching license recertification or Drake University graduate credit.
“Parents depend on coaches to give their players accurate information about training diets, supplements and fluids,” said Ruth Litchfield, ISU Extension nutrition specialist. “These sessions are designed to help coaches and others know what kind of advice they can offer.”
