KCKSA and Blue Cross Blue Shield teach young players importance of proper nutrition

The Sporting Club Network and member club Kansas City Kansas Soccer Association hosted a clinic last month for youth players in Kansas City, Kansas. Thanks to the support of Blue Cross Blue Shield, the Network had the opportunity to work with players of all ages and skill levels in the club and surrounding community.

Not only did the participants learn a variety of tactical and technical ideas, they also received instruction on proper nutrition. Sporting Kansas City head fitness coach Mateus Manoel spoke to the group on how to recognize healthy meal options for growing athletes.

At the conclusion of the clinic, the young players had the chance to meet, take photos with and get some autographs from Sporting Kansas City players Christian Duke, Ike Opara and Aurelien Collin.
