10 Ss of Trainability
10) Socio-Cultural The socio-cultural aspects of sport are significant and must be managed through proper planning. Athletes are socialized through their sport beginning at the community level, and eventually their participation can lead them to a diverse array of multicultural experiences if they pursue international competition. Managed correctly, these socio-cultural experiences can be valuable in broadening the social understanding of athletes, including their awareness of ethnicity, culture and national diversity.
As athletes begin travelling larger distances for competition, recovery periods might include education about the competition location, such as history, geography, architecture, cuisine, literature, music, and visual arts.With planning and foresight, sport can offer much more than a simple commute between hotel room and the competition venue: it can become a powerful means to develop socio-cultural awareness and enrich the lives of athletes.
Socio-cultural activity should not be regarded as a negative distraction or an interference with competition activities. Properly managed, it can be a positive contribution to the development of the person and the athlete.

Losing Weight for Athletes:
Before attempting weight loss consider that:
· Desirable weight loss means fat loss.
· Fat loss is desirable only if it leads to improved athletic performance and maintains good health.
· Many athletes already at their optimal weight believe they are too fat and sacrifice muscle, strength, health, and performance in an attempt to reach an unattainable
· Excessive calorie reduction can lead to muscle loss and slower metabolism.
· Rapid weight loss by dehydration and/or fluid restriction is water loss and can reduce strength, endurance, and overall athletic performance.
A balanced meal plan and an appropriate training program are the keys to success. If you must lose weight, consult a registered dietitian with expertise in sport.
