Using my dust-gathering nursing degree, some additional nutrition education and sprinkling in experience and that connection gift of mine, I set out to solve these huge problems.
I realized I needed to do more than coach my athletes and needed to help make a change to the culture of female athletics.
These days I’m coaching at the college level, raising three athletic girls of my own and I’ve even convinced my former baseball playing husband to coach softball. In this house, we do girl’s sports 24/7.
I always knew I was meant to coach. For some reason I’m a pro at connecting with teenage girls. I don’t know why out of all the gifts to have, this is mine, but I absolutely adore my interactions with teenagers. I get it, you’re probably looking at this like I’m crazy because, you know, teenagers, but these kids light me up.
But I noticed something as I got deeper into athletics. As I talked to former and current athletes, coaches and parents, I noticed patterns in players struggling with constant exhaustion, lack of focus, injuries, low self esteem and sometimes even disordered eating.
As a previous coach and mom to 4 female athletes this is valuable information that needs to be in the hands of coaches and parents of athletes.
I am so excited for this resource.
Or you feel like it’s up to the parents to talk to their kids about these things. But here’s the thing you already know: you don’t have to be an expert or a parent to help your players make better choices, and this includes nutrition.
I can't wait to help you help your athletes reach their potential. Together we can find that missing spark to get your team to the next level. We can cut down on injuries, increase their focus and make them happier. You’ll have the education and information to feel confident telling your athletes and their parents how they can perform at their best without feeling outside your lane or like you’re an imposter.
You don’t have to be an expert or a parent to help your players make better choices, and this includes nutrition.
I see you spending hours working with your athletes, making practice plans and anticipating how the season will go only to have your athletes hit the mental wall in practice or a game, or even worse, go down injured. You’ve watched hours of warm up drills, stretches, different methods to keep your athletes mentally engaged and injury free but it doesn’t seem to be making a difference.
You might be wondering if there’s something you’re missing that is leading to your problems. Or maybe you’ve realized that it could be the junk food you see your players eating during tournaments, or the incomplete lunches they’re offered at school. But you’re not an expert, you don’t want to step outside your lane and onto the toes of the professional.
