The seventh seminar of the WSP Club Development Seminar series was delivered on Monday 15th May by Stephen Barrett on Nutrition for Athletes and Club Players.
Eighteen people from nine clubs representing seven sports attended the seminar which focused on how to use food to optimise an athlete’s health, recovery and energy levels. Stephen gave practical recommendations on how to apply nutritional strategies into our own everyday lives. There was a long question and answer session highlighting the high level of interest in the seminar as participants begin to think differently about food and how it can improve an individual’s health, well being and performance.
The feedback from the course was excellent with participants commenting on the amount of information covered in the seminar. Course participant Roisin Flood from Gaultier GAA said “an informative and valuable source of educating sports players/individuals on the importance of nutrition”. Ray O’Callaghan from Waterford Muay Thai simply said “great knowledge, great communication, great course”.
