Coaching – Leadership Role

As a coach, and a parent, you are the teacher and leader of the young people on your team. These players look to you for guidance and expect you to share your expertise and convey your knowledge to them. Your players, and others that interface with you, are influenced by your actions and deeds.

Please remember to;

Always bear in mind as to the reasons you chose to be a youth soccer coach. Do not waiver from these motives. Do not forget that these young people will reminisce about you, and about this time in their lives, and they will remember what you did, how you acted and reacted, and how you impacted their lives.
You will be remembered.

Sport Drinks

Of the sport drinks available, there are three types that are most popular:

The body sweats in order to maintain proper body heat and in the process, electrolytes are lost. Many people do not know that the body’s production of sweat is controlled to ensure that only small amounts of electrolytes are lost in perspiration. The kidneys also conserve fluid and electrolytes by cutting back on urine production during hydration. Some experts believe it is only after one hour of strenuous exercise such as running that the electrolytes need to be replenished.

The key to good hydration seems to be to drink lot of water before, during and after any workout or activity. Water is essential for proper bodily function. According to a recent study, after 2% of a person’s body weight is lost through perspiration, the person could experience impaired performance. After 4%, the capacity for muscular work declines, after 5% heat exhaustion, 7% hallucination, and after 10% you experience circulatory collapse and heat stroke. Sport drinks are a way to consume electrolytes. Eating a normal diet will provide the body with enough of the electrolytes needed for exercising and physical activity.

If you enjoy drinking sport drinks, you may want to know that you can easily make your own.

You can experiment with the different juices and vary the amount of juice used and your new mix will have the benefits of a sport drink, at a fraction of the cost.
