Swieqi United YFN Project

27 Nov Swieqi United YFN Project

Swieqi United YFN is currently organizing overseeing a project [under the auspices and guidance of the Youth FA] called: Nutrition in Football. The project centers around the implementation and eventual monitoring of a scientific Food Diary for prospective professional players.

The club has engaged the services of qualified Nutritionist Ms. Joanna Vassallo who has been monitoring this pilot project with the Swieqi United 17s group. It is hoped that the material used in this initial project will then be made available for all age groups within the next few years.

Meetings have already taken place at the Cavalieri Hotel where Ms. Vassallo explained the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, keeping track of what is consumed via the Food diary and eventually using the data collected to predict player performance.
The other two Nurseries taking part are San Gwann YFN through Administrator Chris Sant and Birkirkara YFN through contact Thane Micallef.
