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.
