    Soccer & Nutrition

    Hydration Strategies for Soccer - SPORT & EXERCISE SCIENCE, Vol.2, No.6.
    Nutrition for the Pitch - SPORT & EXERCISE SCIENCE, Vol.2, No.6

    Whenever highly talented, motivated and well trained players meet in a soccer competition, the margin between victory and defeat is small. Attention to detail can make that vital difference. Your diet affects your performance, and the food you choose in training and competition will affect how well you train and play.

    A well-balanced and varied diet made of natural foods rich in valuable nutrients is the best performance enhancer you can take in. Compared to doping methods and supplements, it has at least two clear advantages: First, it is allowed and will not place you at risk of a positive doping test and consecutive sanctions. Second, it is healthy and will make you feel better in training, competition and leisure time without any hazards to your physical and mental health.

    No other dietary strategies enjoy the reputation of proven performance enhancers as do the consumption of water and carbohydrate during exercise. You can turn this science into optimum performance and well-being by learning the practical aspects.
    PTS Sports Rehab Training

    66% of all soccer injuries occur to the ankle, knee, head, lower leg and foot. Another interesting finding is the number of players with prior injuries. About half the players with ankle sprains had a prior sprain, many within the same season. The risk of a second ankle sprain increases by 3-5 times in players with a prior sprain. Very often, a major injury was preceded by an incompletely rehabilitated minor injury.

    As a player or a coach, do you know the body parts you should regularly and most attentively stretch? Do you know what techniques in jumping and landing are helpful to avoid knee injuries? What implications should the association between low endurance and injury have for your training schedule? Why should female players learn to lower their body's centre of mass? Do you know how to coach throw-ins of the ball to help in preventing head injuries? Do you know about recovery and overtraining? What special considerations apply for children?

    PTS will work with you to develop training programs and strategies so that your athletes can prevent, and if needed, recover from injury quick and effectively.
