Soccer Player Cassandra Sribny of Pickering and Hockey star Ben Blasko of Kingston were named UOIT athletes of the year.

Ring of Honours

Ridgebacks Athletes Celebrated at Annual Awards Gala

U

OIT recently held its 12th annual awards gala, where studentathletes were recognized for their outstanding achievements. To cap off the celebration, Ben Blasko (Kingston, Ont.) and Cassandra Sribny (Pickering, Ont.) were named athletes of the year. It will be somewhat of a fairy tale ending for the two student-athletes as both Blasko and Sribny are graduating when the 2017-18 academic year comes to an end. Blasko finished off his OUA hockey career recording a season-high 35 points, breaking the Ridgeback singleseason record, helping him to also earn the men’s hockey MVP award. In his Ridgeback career he finished with 23 goals, 58 assists for 81 points, ranking him sixth in all-time scoring with just three seasons under his belt. The Ridgebacks also qualified for the postseason in every year he played. Sribny led the women’s soccer team to their first undefeated regular season, as the Ridgebacks earned the right to host the OUA championship for the first time in program history. She started in all 16 games and recorded nine goals

and two assists. Over her five-year career, she managed to score 34 goals, the most by any Ridgeback. Along with athlete of the year, Sribny took home the women’s soccer leadership award and was named her team’s MVP. Women's soccer defender Alexis Kirton (Pickering, Ont.) and men's badminton player Zhiyi Chen (Newmarket, Ont.) were named the freshman athletes of the year just prior to the final awards of the night. Kirton had an unbelievable freshman campaign as was named an OUA second-team all-star and was key to the Ridgebacks defensive core that allowed only nine goals against. Chen helped write a piece of history for the UOIT badminton team as he was the first player in program history to reach an “A flight” final while leading the team to their first victory at the OUA championship. He was also part of a trio of athletes that represented UOIT at the national championship. Other major award winners included Hafsa Hoda-Sher (Oshawa, Ont. – Women’s Rowing) and Nik Vantfoort (London, Ont. – Men’s

Rowing) who were named the Dr. Gary Polonsky Leadership Award recipients. Both student-athletes were pivotal members of the inaugural Ridgeback Leadership Council. The Rob Millikin Award was given to Jim Jack (Orillia, Ont.) for exemplifying academic success, passion and heart throughout the rowing season. Chelsea Ball (Maple, Ont.) and Jack Patterson (Bedford, N.S.) were the recipients of James-Baun Cup, which is presented to a student on the men's and women's hockey teams who shows commitment, dedication, perseverance, academic responsibility, leadership and is a great teammate in the pursuit of excellence. The Cup is named after Bobby Baun and his long-time friend Don James. The women’s soccer team was awarded the UOIT Team of the Year award for the second consecutive year after posting a 14-0-2 record and hosting the OUA final four. Prior to the awards presentation, the Ridgebacks welcomed back members of the alumni association where the “Ridgeback Ring” was introduced.

Star Lords of 2018 Durham College Hands Out Its Annual Athletic Awards

S

occer stole the show at the 48th annual Durham College athletic banquet as Bruce Cullen (Pickering, Ont.) and Bailey Colangelo (Whitby, Ont.) were named the athletes of the year. Cullen capped off his collegiate career on a high note leading the men’s soccer team to their first Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) gold medal in 20 years and participating in the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) championship held in Nanaimo, B.C. Cullen was named a CCAA All-Canadian, OCAA championship MVP and an OCAA all-star. Other male MVPs included baseball veteran Logan Stewart (Lindsay, Ont.), golfer Ryan Trapp (Janetville, Ont.), indoor soccer’s Stephane Ahanda (Cameroon), basketball graduate Funsho Dimeji (Malton, Ont.), volleyball veteran Erik Janssen (Hampton, Ont.) and rugby captain Malcom Hooper (Orangeville, Ont.). Colangelo became the first freshman in school history to be named the overall female athlete of the year. In her rookie campaign, she was named the overall OCAA rookie of the year, OCAA east region defensive player of the year and an OCAA all-star. As a defender, Colangelo was key in cutting Durham College's goals against in half this year, down from 34 in 2016 to 16 this year and leading the team to their first OCAA championship appearance since 2009. Other female MVPs were softball captain Alanna Stanoev (Whitby, Ont.), indoor soccer player Erin Dicaire (Oshawa, Ont.), women’s basketball veteran Maddie Dender (Ajax, Ont.), volleyball player Jessica Joensen (Pickering, Ont.) and women’s rugby player Masrine Edwards (Whitby, Ont.). Connor May (Oshawa, Ont.) of the

Durham Lords soccer stars Bailey Colangelo of Whitby and Bruce Cullen of Pickering were named Athletes of the Year. baseball team and Emily Glendinning (Plattsville, Ont.) of the women’s softball and basketball teams were named the freshmen athletes of the year. Glendinning, proved to be a big asset to both the women’s softball and basketball teams this season. She helped the softball team win their third straight OCAA title and then went on to finish her rookie basketball season as a starter, averaging 10.5 points per game. May also had an outstanding freshman campaign that concluded with him being named a national championship all-star. May posted a .333 batting average with 17 runs, 10 runs batted in and six stolen bases.

With two OCAA championship titles, an OCAA bronze medal, two final four appearances at nationals, all of the teams qualifying for the postseason and introducing men’s and women’s rugby, there was plenty to celebrate over the course of the night. The men’s soccer team was awarded the team of the year award while the women’s softball team won the inaugural community service award for their countless hours of volunteer work. Prior to the awards ceremony, the Lords paid tribute to the victims of the Humboldt Broncos with moment of silence.

Attention Campers! Tips on How to Pick the Right Hockey Summer Sessions

W

ell winter is over and summer is on its way. That means that many hockey parents are starting to look at summer hockey camps.  Whether your child is a first time camper or a seasoned veteran, there are a lot of factors to think about when registering your son/ daughter in summer hockey camps.  So before you fill out the registration forms, here are factors to think about when choosing a hockey camp: ACTIVITIES: From half day to full day to week long, hockey camps should have other sports and activities included in the agenda.  Camps these days have activities galore, and with each of these activities comes the opportunity for your son/daughter to gain new skills,  If your son/daughter is highly interested in working on a specific skill or activity, and then a specialty camp might be a good fit for them. Be sure to find a camp that offers activities that appeal to your camper.

LOCATION: The hockey camp community is forever growing and expanding, which means you can find summer camps located in every city in Durham Region. With so many camps out there, there are likely several camps to choose from within a reasonable distance from where you live.  On hot summer days, are there water activities or air conditioning to keep the kids cool?  If the camp has a lot of rain days, how are activities modified to keep kids safe and dry? Ask the questions. SESSION LENGTHS: Looking for a camp that offers week long sessions?  Or is your son/daughter interested in spending the whole summer at different hockey camps? Each camp’s session lengths vary, so make sure the camp you are interested in offers sessions that fit into your

Quality Staff is One of the Most Important Factors When Choosing your child's Camp. summer plans. Don’t be surprised when your son/daughter has such a great time at camp that they aren’t ready to come home at the end the day STAFFING: Hockey camp is a great place for the kids to build independence and get a great taste of freedom, but the concern on every parent’s mind is safety. The amount of supervision provided varies from camp to camp. Some camps allow campers to enjoy unsupervised time while other camps require constant direct supervision.  Ask about staff-to-player ratios. At my full day hockey camps we always have a ratio of 5 skaters to every instructor. This is super important for correction and detection on and off the ice. Also, ask about the instructors' background. Do they have the right skills to teach your child both on and off the ice? FOOD:  Food is a highly important part of day to day life, and meal times play an equally important role in the camp setting. Does the camp take peanut allergies or any food allergies

seriously? Do they respect kids that are vegan, eat gluten free?  If your son/ daughter has any dietary concerns or food allergies, be sure to ask about any meals that are provided by the camp. MEDICAL RESOURCES: When your kids are at a camp all day, you hope that they will never need to seek out medical attention, but accidents do happen.  In case an illness or injury does arise, you will want to know how medical situations are handled.  Does the camp have a trainer or coach who has medical training?  . PRICE: You don’t need to break the bank to give your child an amazing summer hockey camp.  A huge price tag doesn’t necessarily mean a better camp experience. The right hockey camp for your son/ daughter is out there- time to kick the summer planning into gear and get ready for a great summer at hockey camp! Until next time Scary Mary says see you at the rink ...

Are you a NARP? Time to Get Up and Get With a Fitness Plan

A

“NARP” according to the Urban Dictionary is officially a Non Athletic Regular Person. Everyone needs to move. Everyone needs to move better and everyone can be more athletic. In our world Inside the Red at TWIST, we are leading a movement for the extinction of NARPs because we believe everyone is an athlete. Whether you are a NARP, an elite athlete working to succeed at the next level, a mom trying to manage her job, family, and her own fitness, or a grandfather who still plays hockey a couple of times a week, everyone can benefit from moving better, getting stronger, understanding how the body works, and enjoying the process along the way. In order to move better it would help to understand movement better, so for today, everyone is also a physicist and we will explore Newton’s Laws of motion to help

understand how we move and how we can all move better. Newton’s First Law of Motion says basically that an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion.  This means if your usual state is to be stopped, seated, planted and/ or otherwise immobile, you are likely to remain that way. If, however you decide to get up, get moving and keep moving you are more likely to continue to do so. This law also outlines the concept of INERTIA and our objective within a strength and conditioning program to help people move objects (their bodies, other bodies in contact sports, loaded objects etc.) and control the movement of these objects (deceleration, directions changes, shifting gears, absorbing contact). This is an essential concept in the world of health, fitness and performance. Once you get moving, we can

begin to focus on how well you move. General fitness and strength and conditioning programs should all have the same objective, to help you move better. Most people are not just trying to be better squatters, treadmillers, plankers, or benchpressers, but everyone wants to improve the way they move in a way that fits their life. The journey of fitness, health and performance begins when we're born, and continues until we stop moving. We can always improve it. Kids, adults, seniors, and even high performance athletes can improve their movement and even learn new movement skills. Whether you are an elite athlete, a teenager or active adult who wants to stay fit and healthy throughout your life and be a strong, healthy role model for your kids, everyone can improve their physical literacy and athleticism.

everyone to move better, to improve their skills to perform better and to stay physically active in order to live a healthy active life. Despite all of the research and knowledge on the importance of physical activity, many people of all ages are still sedentary or not nearly as active as they need to be every day. It is estimated that only 30% of the adult population in Canada participates in a regular health and fitness plan. For a country that prides itself on being fit and healthy we still have a lot of work to do. Some would quickly assume inactive people are just lazy or apathetic but the truth is, they may be intimidated, or simply lack the confidence to get moving in the first place. The great news is that as strength and conditioning coaches and fitness professionals we have the tools to change this trend.  We are teachers. We must teach clients and athletes how to use their body properly, how their muscles work together, and how to move efficiently.  Then we must help them practice and reinforce this knowledge. Movement is simply about taking muscles through a full, functional range of motion and expanding that range of motion. It is about stabilizing the joints to handle deceleration and direction changes without injury. It is about developing explosive muscle firing patterns to accelerate quickly and change gears efficiently. Movement challenges your body to be able to stop and go and challenges your heart and lungs to adapt to a variety of conditioning intervals and intensities. It is exciting to see strength training make a resurgence over the past few years and to see adults excited about getting stronger, challenging themselves more within their fitness programs and training more like athletes. One thing that people must realize when it comes to training intensity, is that moving any load is a movement skill and there are many

elements that must come together to execute strength training technique besides moving weight up and down. This brings us to Newton’s Second Law of Motion: Acceleration (Movement) occurs when a force acts on a mass. We all instinctively know that heavier things require more force to move them. That is why strength training is such an essential part of every health and fitness program if we want to move heavier things and/or we want to move things faster, we have to get stronger and be able to apply more force.

It is estimated that only 30% of the adult population in Canada participates in a regular health and fitness plan.

This is also true in relation to the speed of the movement and is relevant for explosive sports and activities where power and explosive speed are required. Conversely, if we get stronger we can also absorb force more efficiently and this is essential to helping to reduce the risk of injury. If you cannot perform a movement properly due to injury, dysfunction, coordination, muscle weakness or imbalance, and you load it and try to move it, injury is inevitable. Similarly with movement drills for agility, plyometric jumping drills, movement based circuit training progressions, and even endurance activities such as running, biking, swimming etc. Athletes learn how to execute proper movement patterns and muscle firing patterns in order to get

stronger and challenge the intensity and complexity of movements more. If mechanical issues exist in any movement pattern and the pattern is repeated or loaded excessively, injury will occur. First, learn to move properly, then load, lift and challenge the complexity and intensity of the movement. Quality of movement should always supersede quantity of movement. The question that everyone must consider when performing any exercise or drill is simple. Why? Why this particular exercise/ movement? Why, am I doing a specific number of sets and repetitions? Why, am I using this tempo? What is the true purpose of this drill? Is it going to make me better or just make me tired? Is this exercise a smart choice or is it just a novel one? A basic concept of developing athletic and functional strength is learning to apply force from the ground up. This is the basis for almost all movement and is outlined in Newton’s Third Law of Motion: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Understanding and utilizing these reaction forces can have tremendous impact when it comes to going faster and jumping higher. Absorbing and controlling these ground forces is also essential to decreasing injury risk as it is often these forces that result in ACL, ankle and other noncontact injuries. Life is long-term and all of us want to continue to get better every day. No matter what your sport or activity, if something motivates you to get moving, stay moving and keep moving better, it is worth doing, and it is worth doing well. You are only truly a NARP if you choose to be. Now is the time to re-set your goals and make a plan to improve your fitness. Now is your chance to move more, You can be the object at rest, or the object in motion, the choice is up to you.

Jay Harrison, Bob McKenzie and Peter MacKellar were inducted as the 2018 Hall of Fame Class..

Hall Honours Trio

Whitby Induction Ceremony a Big Hit With all Involved

O

n April 28, 2018, the Whitby Sports Hall of Fame celebrated its 21st induction ceremonies, held annually to recognize and to honour individuals and teams who, as a result of their respective efforts, have contributed to the advancement and the quality of sports in our community and brought acclaim to the Town of Whitby. The inductees for 2018 were Jay Harrison (Athlete - Hockey), Peter MacKellar (Athlete - Hockey), and Bob McKenzie (Media). This year’s Gala was held once again at Royal Ashburn Golf Course; their onsite staff did an outstanding job in supporting our committee in the coordination and hosting of that night’s festivities. The formal part of the program began with the introductory procession in which the inductees are led by a bagpiper to their respective seats, followed by welcoming words from Rocky Gualtieri, President of the Whitby Sports Hall of Fame, and Whitby Mayor Don Mitchell, who both spoke about the importance of the Hall in preserving and promoting the rich history of sports in Whitby. Rob Snoek, Sports Director, Durham Radio

Rob Snoek and Evanka Osmak each spoke at the induction Ceremony.

and radio play-by-play voice of the Peterborough Petes acted as Master of Ceremonies for the evening, and Evanka Osmak, Host, Sportsnet Central was the keynote speaker. The program included a full meal service, as well as a silent auction, raffles, and a spirited live auction during which participants bid on a microbrewery tour and two TSN studio tours, generously donated by Lux Limousine Services and TSN The Sports Network respectively; as an added bonus, lucky tour winners received complimentary gift certificates from Royal Oak Pub for their after-tour enjoyment. The evening concluded with video

tributes for each of the three inductees, followed by their individual remarks to all those in attendance. A common theme throughout their speeches was their immense pride to identify themselves as representatives of our town throughout their chosen careers; to tell anyone and everyone that he was born, raised, and played his minor hockey in Whitby (Jay) or that it was indeed a privilege to wear the Whitby Dunlops jersey (Peter) or that he specifically articulates Whitby as his home town whenever he is asked the question (Bob). The Whitby Sports Hall of Fame committee could not sustain the Hall without the continued support that we receive from members of our community. We extend our sincere thanks to our Corporate Partners, Gala Sponsors, Program Advertisers, Auction Items Donors, and all friends of the Hall who chose to share their evening with us on the 28th of April, and we are already looking forward to hosting our 22nd Annual Induction Ceremonies at Royal Ashburn Golf Club on Saturday, April 27, 2019.

East of the Nest

Former Jays Coach Eric Owens Now Calls Durham Home How on earth did a Blue Jay coach end up as my neighbour in Durham? OWENS: If you had asked me three years ago if I could see myself living east of Toronto or even Ontario, or so much as Canada I would have thought it was crazy and never considered it an option. I’ve lived in Arizona for over 15 years and have gotten used to the hot summers and back drop of red rocks and cacti. I travelled much over the past 25 years and always considered Arizona “home” as much as it could be given my busy schedule. In 2014, I was a rover with the Dodgers and I got a phone call from a guy named Alex Anthropolis. He had been tipped by Brook Jacoby with the Blue Jays that I had recently played a lead role in developing some all-star players such as Mike Trout, Corey Seager, Mark Trumbo, Dee Gordon, to name a few. They were looking for special pedigree with vast experience to become the first ever assistant hitting coach with the Blue Jays. I was excited with the possibility to be the first in this role and to represent the only MLB team for all of Canada. It was a no brainer. "I had to find a short-term rental near the Roger’s Centre. Someone gave me the name of a local realtor to help me find a suitable place. That’s when I met Christine Denty (now Christine Owens). We arranged an appointment to look at a suitable place. That evening it was raining literally sideways and we had to sit tight at a local watering hole until it let up. Christine was worried about her hair and driving home wet and gross (lady problems), so we patiently waited for the rain to subside, all the while getting to know each other a little better. When the season finally

After a stint as Blue Jays assistant hitting coach, Eric Owens has brought his baseball knowledge to Help Players in Durham Region. started we had kept in touch and found ourselves communicating more and more. She was the only person I got a chance to know well here in Canada. I started inviting her to games (she had hated baseball) and she reluctantly went, so she could spend time with me after the game. As time went on we became an “official” couple (according to the Jays) and Christine was now travelling with myself and the Jays during the 2015 playoffs, and now loving baseball. The organization of players, sports

anchors, behind the scenes staff, (which we called the “Jays family”) knew there was something special going on and that this Canadian girl wasn’t a fly by night relationship. To that I certainly agreed and proposed to my Canadian girl on December 3rd, 2015 after the season ended. With that came the realization that I was not returning to Arizona any time soon. This is a sacrifice that I am reminded of each cold winter… but I do love it here, the people, the lush forests, and my new extended family and friends.

••• Why did you decide not to work for another MLB team after the 2016 season? OWENS: There are a few reasons. This is not to say that this possibility is not a real consideration. I loved my time coaching the big leagues and I don’t see myself completely retiring the thought. I still get lots of calls and converse with MLB coaches and players about talent and games often. Right now, I get to wake up in my own bed, day after day. It doesn’t sound like much to the average person. But for me I never had this luxury. It as always hotels, short term rentals, eating dinners out, up and go again and again. I am not living out of a suitcase anymore. I can set goals personally, and professionally (and achieve them) which before felt next to impossible. So, to that I say, unless something is BIG enough to pull me away from what I am now enjoying, I am staying here in Durham Region. ••• Who was the most interesting Jays player to work with? OWENS: Edwin Encarnacion. He was the quiet assassin, the leader of the clubhouse. Players respected Edwin, and such was a man of few words. He was able to predict what the pitcher was going to throw and execute his swing within milliseconds to hit the ball with force and accuracy. Something you can’t teach in a day or week or year. People would ask how he did it and the answer could only come from him. Even though he had such an intimidating demeanor, he managed to be the jokester in the lockerroom, playing pranks on teammates constantly. No one ever got one up on Edwin. He was the alpha. ••• As an MLB coach, what trait did rookies portray that was a sign they were destined for the big leagues?

OWENS: To answer this, I need to highlight the guys that have already succeeded in the big leagues: Kevin Pillar, Ryan Goins, Devin Travis … They all had something I label as “positive mental attitude”. Proven mental toughness, the ability to adjust in their swings and plays, and playing for the team not for themselves. When one plays in a sport where failure is a common outcome it is hard to pick yourself up repeatedly. The inner voice inside sends negative messages which impacts the ability to constantly improve. If an individual can overcome this baseball habit of becoming frustrated and throwing in the” mental towel”, they can get better, even good enough for the big leagues. Pillar, Goins, and Travis have become expert at tuning out the negativity and reverting to the positive messages that got them to be better and stronger. ••• Is there baseball talent here in Durham? OWENS: I am surprised at how much talent I come across through my EO’s Elite Mentorship program. This program was born last year, and hand picks talent seen on the fields and local community. I limit my program to 20 kids at a time in the calendar year. I nickname my kids “mentors” so that they can own their potential and feel like the superstars that they are. These kids range from ages 10-17. These youth show promise, to why I have selected them to be in my program.

It all starts and ends with the swing. If they latch on to my no-nonsense coaching and become consistent hitters, they can make it in baseball. Unless a kid decides to be a pitcher, the most important skill is to be able to hit a 90 MPH fastball, in the right direction. Without that skill the likelihood to make the big leagues is bleak. The other skills are taught but focus is obviously on what scouts look for which is hitting. These kids here in Durham are strong, versatile and big! I have 15year old’s looking me eye to eye. A hockey physique has come into play a few times as strength comes from their legs, which is the primary area of the body power comes from to hit a ball high and far. Hockey is not a necessary skill to be a good ball player but seems to give a built-in advantage that others need to attain on their own. You won’t find this is the States as much as you do here. Canada has a unique sports culture and as I tap more and more into the potential of baseball talent, I feel there are hidden athletes looking to be coached and propelled into the big leagues. One of my prodigies that I coach at Everest Academy in Vaughan, Ajax’s own Denzel Clarke, had just been scouted for the Canadian Olympic baseball team. This tells me I’m doing something right with the talent here in Durham … hence in 2017 launching my annual EO’s Summer Baseball Camp at Iroquois parks. This camp allows me to connect with players of all skill ranges. I hope to inspire youth to gain authentic MLB taught skills just like they do in the big leagues, but at varying levels for age and skill. This camp is my baby and so long as I can fill this camp every year, I can have the Durham Region as my hub to serve as a Canadian resource for baseball talent for many years to come.

A Gentle Voice Fades WGSA Deeply Saddened By Passing of Dave Conway

“The nicest man I’ve ever met.”

T

hese words have been echoed by just about everyone who ever met Dave Conway, and we are all sad to have lost him in December 2017. Dave Conway was a dedicated member of the Whitby Girls Softball Association Board of Directors for the past 5 years, however his interest in and contributions towards the WGSA began well before his Board role. He started out as a grandparent cheering for and volunteering on the teams of his grandchildren Brenna Savery and Aubrey Skanes, moving on to coach with his daughter, Margie Skanes (also our WGSA Registrar). He often lent his assistance to WGSA events such as our Picture and Skills Day or with our float in the Santa

Claus parade. Dave took on the role of umpiring, and finally to joining our Board. In all capacities Dave was a gentle voice, giving softball advice when useful and encouraging words when needed. Well before his involvement in the WGSA, softball was clearly in his blood. He first became active in local softball programs back when his own daughters were children. He even started the Oshawa Shamrock’s Rep team in the 1970s! His joy at helping out, watching the players grow and have fun was evident in his ongoing commitment and the ever-present smile on his face. Whitby Girls Softball Association has benefited over the years from Dave’s tremendous participation and he will be missed.

••• The WGSA is looking forward to providing another enjoyable summer of softball for girls in Whitby and Durham Region, and the 2018 season is just around the corner! Our competitive Select Tryouts & House League evaluations take place in April. In May, we’re looking forward to getting back on the diamonds for our regular season schedule, and our annual Skills & Picture Day with lots of fun activities planned so you don’t want to miss that! 2018 Registration is available online anytime & space if filling up, so be sure to sign up now to secure your spot! Check out our website www. whitbygirlssoftball.com and social media (@whitbylightning) to stay up to date! What’s your game this summer?

Recipe for Success Its Important to Use Fodd for Fuel and Recovery

A

thletes who want results must give themselves the very best chance for success. For optimal results, training alone is simply not enough. Along with a solid off-season training plan, a customized nutrition program is essential for taking performance training to the next level. From fueling to recovery, muscle building to endurance, optimal nutrition ensures success for training and thus success in your sport, at whatever level you compete. It’s refreshing to see that more people are becoming aware that better nutrition leads to better outcomes. It is finally becoming accepted that proper nutrition is incredibly important in disease prevention and for reaching optimal health. As an athlete, nutrition is not only critical for health, but for success as well, and nutrient requirements for performance athletes are higher than for the general populations. Most elite athletes are told that a healthy diet is important in order to fuel their bodies. But a healthy diet is also critical for proper recovery,

regeneration, injury prevention, and keeping the immune system strong to ward off illness. But what is a healthy diet? Some trainers believe a healthy diet involves eating “low-fat and low-carb” or “high-fat and high protein”. They often advise their athletes to exclude whole grains and legumes and restrict fruits and vegetables, yet endorse loads of chemically laden bacon, processed meats and man-made “sports” products. Other trainers believe it’s simply about calories in and calories out and it doesn’t matter what quality of food is consumed. No doubt, there are a lot of mixed messages aimed at athletes, especially youth athletes – just take a look at what types of products popular star athletes are promoting. As a Holistic Nutritionist, my approach is to integrate the concept of traditional sports nutrition with the concept of functional nutrition and focus on training, performance and recovery. Functional nutrition recognizes that every athlete responds differently to diet, training, recovery, and

environmental factors and therefore requires an individualized approach. This comprehensive approach addresses the specific needs of each athlete tailored to their individual lifestyle, training and recovery requirements allowing for maximum benefits while promoting long-term health. So, what should an athlete actually eat? And, how much? How often? That’s where a solid nutrition program comes in. I am a firm believer that the quality of foods, along with quantity and nutrient timing, plays a tremendous role in whether an athlete achieves their goals (or not!). Nutrition is also a critical component when healing from a sports injury or surgery. There are also other aspects to consider along with diet. Rest, recovery and regeneration cannot be left out of the mix. A well-designed nutrition program will guide and educate the athlete so that they are able to make proper food and lifestyle choices that helps them achieve the health, body composition and performance goals they desire.

A

s the hockey comes to an end, Lakeside Academy congratulates all of our students for their hard work over season. With their leadership and dedication, our students helped their teams to finish strong. Lakeside students on the Whitby Wildcats Novice AAA won the OMHA Championship. This is the first time this age group has won gold since the 2004-05 season.

"My Son is so happy at Lakeside Academy. It's more than just a school, they have made such a difference in our son's life." — Nicole Rowe

As young, active kids, like most children, their energy is limitless. They need sports, and time to play, as part of their daily curriculum so that they can succeed in the classroom. Do the following accounts sound familiar? “My child is having a tough time in her school.”

“Teachers complain that he can’t sit still.” “She is disruptive and lacks focus.” “His teacher recommends that he should be tested for ADHD. This is just not working!” There are solutions to these challenges: First, physical education
