The youth at Dover Shores Soccer for Success program got a special treat when Orlando City Soccer Star Julio Baptista stopped by to talk about the importance of proper nutrition for athletes. The children were able to ask questions about how the world cup champion prepares for games and what his favorite foods are, as well as discuss what they would like to be when they grow up. It was an inspiring afternoon on the field with The Beast!
Throughout the 12-week program, Orlando City staff, coaches and players visit the center three times a week to interact with children and provide guidance in four main areas: physical activity, nutrition, mentorship and family engagement. We are so excited to see this program expand to include the youth at Dover Shores and look forward to seeing even more youth get involved this summer!
