Abstract: Coaches are a major source of nutrition information and influence for young athletes. Yet, most coaches do not have specific or formal training in nutrition and their knowledge is insufficient to properly guide their athletes on this topic. These observations show that the majority of coaches have the intention to recommend hydration, whereas less than half have the intention to recommend carbohydrates or proteins to their athletes. Subjective norm and perceived behavioral control (PBC) represent key determinants of coaches’ intention to recommend these sports nutrition practices. These data led us to the development of an intervention aimed at improving coaches’ advice regarding sports nutrition. The results suggest that a theory-based intervention combined with decision-making algorithm on sports nutrition recommendations appears to be effective in maintaining coaches’ knowledge in sports nutrition over time, and in having coaches providing better sports nutrition advice to athletes.
