Dear Parents,

A challenging return to training on Monday as we went from extreme hot weather conditions to rain, rain and rain…!

Despite the tricky weather, I was impressed by the resilience and the determination of the players to push on until the end of the session. What a welcome back for parents! It must have been a shock for those watching after the long break from football.

Training itself was a relatively fun affair filled with enthusiasm as players reconnected with each other after the long break.

With a number of extra development events planned for this term in the form of tournaments, players and families are in for an exciting 10 weeks with local, interstate and international events on the cards.

Specific information in regards to the tournaments will be sent to individual groups via WhatsApp.

Summer Survival Guide: How parents and kids can stay fit and healthy in the school holidays

For many parents, the summer can be a stressful time…

The kids are about to break up from school, holidays are just around the corner, and with it often comes numerous hurdles that could derail your fitness regime.

Exercise routines often go out of the window, parents find themselves putting their kids’ needs first, and travelling on holiday can wreak havoc on your waistline.

And it’s not just parents that suffer.

Research suggests that the summer holidays can be detrimental to children’s health, with several studies linking summer holidays to increases in BMI and obesity rates [1-2].

However, don’t panic.

We’ve worked with thousands of clients at Ultimate Performance who are parents and helped them build up the skills, knowledge and tricks to successfully navigate the tricky summer months.
