Ethics and Nutrition
Teamtheme believe very strongly that it’s never too early to start educating our children in nutrition, and in an ethical approach to life in general. In line with this philosophy, we will never be tempted to take sponsorship monies in return for our endorsement of products, services or foodstuffs that we judge to be detrimental to the health of the children in our care.
Our professional coaches will gently and sometimes subliminally remind children that certain foods are better for them than others, and about the importance of ‘balance’ and moderation in all things. The taking in of fluids is, of course, crucial to any child or adult partaking in regular exercise.
We feel that many well known companies, whose aim it is to sell their products or services to children, contradict directly with our own policy. We, as a matter of course, reward children with personal school equipment, clothing, sports gear and drink bottles as another way of promoting the intake of fluids.
Parents may find this aspect of our coaching to be as important to their children as the training in fun and football skills. Any child can emerge from a Teamtheme course feeling that they have improved their knowledge of nutrition, become better footballers, increased their circle of friends and gained in confidence – as well as winning a prize, medal or trophy!
