Nutritional Support for Young Soccer Players

Soccer is a high intensity sport which causes the body to consume a lot of energy in order for athletes to perform at their highest levels. This physically demanding sport can cause the body to utilize up to 2000 calories during a competitive 90-minute match, and athletes can require more than 3400 calories per day. Lack of suitable nutrition will impair performance, manifesting as reduced speed, reduced strength, or reduced coordination. Improper nutrition can also impair proper body development of muscle tissue normally gained by exercise.

New Kent Sharks teams coming Fall 2018!

The club is excited to announce the partnership with New Kent Parks & Rec to provide opportunities for the 'travel level' soccer players in the area. Many New Kent residents were looking for the next level after playing in the New Kent Parks & Rec league for many seasons. The residents had to travel West to Richmond or East to Williamsburg to be part of a travel club. Martin Vickerton, Club Director met with the New Kent County leaders and the club and county were able to form a partnership to bring travel soccer to New Kent!

Healthy Snacks for Tidewater Sharks Players

To get the best health and athletic performance, it is important for our players to eat well-balanced meals and snacks and drink plenty of liquids. Good nutrition provides fuel for the body to grow and perform, and also helps your body heal faster after injury; and drinking a lot of fluids, especially plain water, is very important for preventing dehydration resulting in multiple dangers of losing too much water from your body.
