Limited spaces available!
We are offering coaches the chance to join a nutrition workshop with Renee McGregor BSc (hons) PGDIP (DIET) PGCERT(sportsnutr) RD SENr – and author of Eat Well, Feel Fab.
This is the first workshop in a series of four coming up over the next few months, with others to follow on physiotherapy, physical preparation, and mindset. The workshops are part of the services offered in the east area where we are piloting a ‘Regional Support Hub’ to help clubs further support and develop their coaches and gymnasts in their home training environments.
We have identified clubs currently engaged in a Scottish Gymnastics performance programme or clubs who have gymnasts in a British Gymnastics performance programme to be a part of the pilot.
However, due to its relevance in the development of growing gymnasts, the nutrition workshop is also open to coaches who are not in the support hub.
What: Nutrition workshop for coaches
Where: Caledonia House, 1 Redheughs Rigg, Edinburgh EH12 9DQ
When: Monday 2 October
Session 1: 1pm – 3pm
Session 2: 6pm – 8pm
How much: £35.00 per person.
We have 10 SPACES for each session available on a first come, first served basis.
Please phone our performance department on 0131 271 9732 by 5pm on Friday 29 September.
If out of office hours, please complete this form instead.
Please note, if you book over the weekend, we will be unable to confirm your place until Monday 9am - make sure you put your mobile number on the form.
About Renee and the workshop
Benefits: Sports Nutrition is a key area for gymnasts as well as coaches and parents to understand: fuelling effectively and recovering appropriately are important for consistent training, resulting in progression. This is even more important when working with developing athletes that are growing as well as the added challenges of daily routines and travel between school and training.
