AEP COACH is aiming to provide informal peer mentorship, promote discussion, and target what coaches are interested in learning about in an affordable and accessible way. Breakfast workshops will be coordinated throughout the year to address and answer questions or support the interest from the group. This is truly a unique program and the only one of its kind in Alberta.

  • Promote discussion and education through coach breakfasts
  • Discussion led by ASDC SW Athlete Enhancement Team and guest speakers
  • ASDC SW will coordinate to provide answers and insight into what coaches want to hear about through conversations that occur at the breakfasts

Nutrition is a critical part of an athlete’s life and an important part of sport performance for developing athletes and for growth and development. Athletes need to learn what, when and how to eat and drink before, during and after activity.
