Game Day Nutrition for Youth Hockey Players

By Dan Garner, Hockey Training, 01/02/19, 12:00PM CST


We are not trying to build the best athletes in the world today, we are trying to create a healthy foundation so that they can become the best athletes they can be later in life.

What does nutrition look like for young hockey players?

In this article, I want to go over how good nutrition habits can improve hockey performance and recovery for young athletes and briefly touch upon the health factors it’s going to provide as well.

Let’s get into it …

As I outline in the many youth hockey programs we have available here at Hockey Training, the nutritional patterns we develop in our youth serve as a foundation for how we are going to eat for life.

The behaviors, relationships, and food we eat shape our brain development, overall health, body composition, metabolism and ability to repeatedly perform in high-energy sports like hockey.
