SSNCP aspires to provide the public with information pertaining to proper diet & fueling to address their energy needs, fitness goals, and performance goals to create an ideal environment for healing, as well as helping them achieve their ideal body composition.

Poor food selection can hinder an athlete’s progress, recovery rate, and ability to perform. SSNCP is a program designed to educate and assist our athletes on making better decisions about what they put into their body so they can perform at an elite level.

Additional services are provided with the program, which focus on injury prevention to keep athletes on the field and off the sidelines.
