Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Nutrition education series for female club soccer players 14 to 18 years of age
by Miller, Nicole Y., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 81; 10254192
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this directed project was to develop a nutrition education curriculum for competitive youth soccer players. This project is aimed to improve the nutrition knowledge deficit among female adolescents, thereby improving general health and athletic performance. This curriculum also considers the athletes’ familial dependence and provides nutrition resources to parents.

This is a five-part group and team education series designed to address the sport-, gender- and age-specific nutrition needs of the target population. Based on current research, adolescents perceive group education and discussion to be most useful. Each lesson includes handouts for reference and an interactive activity to enrich the educational experience.

An expert panel has reviewed this program and provided critical insight and recommendations for revisions. As verified by an expert review panel, this curriculum is evidence-based, current and applicable. This program was not pilot tested, but should be prior to implementation.
