Coaching Association of Canada

Sport Nutrition

Whether you coach first-time participants at the community sport level or national team athletes, proper nutrition is essential for overall good health and optimal athletic performance. Participants of all ages and at all levels of competition are affected by good nutrition. It’s not only about knowing what to eat -- it's also knowing when to eat, especially if you’re on the road with your athletes, or even with other coaches or parents. Plan ahead to maintain good eating habits by browsing our nutrition tips, and/or contacting a registered SNAC dietitian in your area that can answer your specific nutrition questions!
