Girls teams enjoy nutrition workshops at BU


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

This week, the two youngest AFC Bournemouth girls teams visited Bournemouth University's Talbot Campus for a student-led workshop. 

Throughout the season, the age groups will take part in various workshops exploring topics including healthy lifestyles, internet safety and football-specific position based workshops. 

The first session of the the year saw two of the teams partake in a nutrition workshop. The opening part was a classroom-based activity where the girls learnt about the importance of a balanced diet and how they can fuel up for football. 

The second part to their session was a practical activity, which saw the girls in the kitchen making pizzas using tortilla wraps. Each of the players made their own pizzas, complete with lots of vegetables and a protein source. 

Speaking after the event, head of community Steve Cuss said: “The opening workshop of the season for the girls teams was beneficial in gaining knowledge in how to support the on field training with a positive healthy lifestyle off the pitch. 

“The under 10s and 12s showed good knowledge in the classroom setting and really enjoyed the opportunity to cook a healthy pizza.

“We are grateful to Bournemouth University for hosting the event and would like to thank the students for their excellent delivery.”
