“Dear Warrior Kelly, Warrior Ben and the rest of the Warrior Up to Win crew,
Thank you for letting our Jr Inferno team be the first to test out the Warrior Up to Win Challenge! We had a lot of fun with it and learned a lot of new information.
In both Level One and Two, the videos were done up to be “short and sweet” so the kids didn’t mind watching them and they weren’t a huge time commitment at home plus, the messages were simple to grasp. The tracker was easy to fill out once we laid out the rules to our team challenge as Level One was an individual point system with Level Two being a team challenge for points.
From a coaching perspective, it has been nice to see the girls take on some personal responsibilities to be sure they have their water bottles ready for game and practice times. Also, they would come in the dressing room with better choice snacks and during Level One, you could always find a few smoothie containers around (smoothie was listed on the tracker sheet for that level and seemed to be a favourite for many).
As a parent, I found the Warrior Up to Win Challenge to be encouraging as it’s not a diet program but a healthy choice/awareness program. The program reinforces the need to eat food to fuel your body and active kids need the right food to keep their energy up. Your program reinforces what we are trying to teach our kids and our kids love us but who is kidding who, they also tune their parents out as well so to have another voice give the same message is fantastic… Drink your water (which as adults we can always use a reminder too), eat a proper snack (one that will fuel your activity level), choose healthy meals and try new foods.
Thanks for your time with this. We all learned that healthy food can be tasty and fun!!
We would like to wish you luck as you open this program up to the rest of the world.
Eat the food, check the box, get your points!!”
Jr. Inferno - Atom 1 North Coaching Team
1st in the World to complete the Warrior UP To Win Program!!! :-)
“The kids are taking a more active role in choosing their foods and they know how to read a label and what to look for. Plus the whole team is drinking a lot more water as they understand why they need to hydrate as athletes. (The"Drink UP" lesson drives the hydrate message home in a funny way and it stuck for the kids!)”
“I'd never thought I say this but yep I'm looking forward to eating clean for the next level of Warrior Up to Win. Bring it on! If you have children in sports check out the Warrior Up to Win program. There is no better way to get child athletes on the path to developing healthy eating habits. Oh and it's free!
If you coach kids in any sport and sick of seeing them trying to have fruit loops before a big game you need to check out Warrior Up to Win. Free program that will change how your kids eating habits forever!!!
Thank you Warrior Up To Win for inspiring us all to eat better! The girls are doing a great job making better food choices. The way the Inferno girls are eating these days they might just measure up with the Olympians!”
