When the "Bad Guys" Win
At a PACT (Parents and Coaches Together) presentation last year, one of the parents asked a very pointed question: "Why do the bad guys always win?"  It was a difficult question, one which kept PACT presenters discussing possible answers for over a year.  To see what they came up with, click the attached link When the "Bad Guys" Win

Nutrition and Performance
There is an important link between nutrition and performance.  Improper diet and/or hydration can seriously affect the performance of any athlete.  This is more critical for young athletes who are growing and burning energy at a more rapid rate than adults.  The child who tires quickly will not only have poorer performance, but have less fun playing sports.  This could lead to your child's lack of interest in playing sports.

For more information on the web about your child's nutrition see the FIFA Nutrition Booklet (also included on the Players page).
