Coaching

Calverton Tackles Obesity

 

Calverton Miners Welfare FC used football to tackle one of the country's biggest issues - child obesity - during the school holidays.

The Nottinghamshire based club were nominated as The FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year (2004/05) due to their incredible community work.

By using The FA’s Three Lions brand, Calverton advertised their project to children in the three local primary schools within their community, attracting over 50 keen footballers to their two-week project.

Fully qualified coaches at the club gave the children lots of fun activities and games to play in, in a safe and controlled environment during the day, and the children also took part in SAQ (Speed, Agility and Quickness) sessions.

During lunch breaks, the club's qualified nutritionist delivered enjoyable sessions on eating and drinking, educating the children on ‘The Balance Of Good Health’. The main topics covered included:

  • The ‘Balance of Good Health’
  • 5 A DAY.
  • The importance of eating breakfast
  • Energy input vs energy expenditure
  • Exercise and re-hydration water vs fizzy drinks

The children were provided with a nutritionally balanced lunch by the club. This was an ideal time for many children to try new foods.

The feedback was fantastic and it is great to see a club offering a project that uses football to tackle issues such as health.

Calverton are going to continue this project every year and, due to the impact it has made, the Nottinghamshire FA are looking to use the club and the nutritionist to deliver in-service sessions to other FA Charter Standard club and school representatives.
