  • NUTRITION NEWSLETTERS FROM OUR PAST NUTRITIONIST – Joyce Hunter worked in the past with our teams and players on nutrition applied to soccer and left a legacy of knowledge and documents.
Joyce is a Nutritional consultant, an ACSM  Personal Certified Trainer, and a Boise State University adjunct professor. She has been involved on fitness, health and nutrition for many years and currently is a nutritional consultant for two holistic doctors in the area. She is actively involved in sports and has played collegiate basketball at the University of Utah.
Joyce worked with our club to create a Sport Nutrition Program for our club teams, which also reflected guidelines for proper nutrition before games, in between games, and after games as well as considerations on proper nutrition on tournament trips and on an athlete’s life in general.

Joyce worked directly with players on short segments during practices and games, sent periodic newsletter to the Real Soccer Club Families and attended monthly coaches meetings periodically to work and guide our technical staff.
