There was a lot of excitement in the halls at Eastlake Elementary School as students prepared for the arrival of some REAL Salt Lake soccer stars. The players held an assembly at Eastlake for 5th and 6th grade students, hoping to inspire life-long healthy habits in the children.
REAL Salt Lake’s Corey Baird, Justen Glad and Nick Besler talked about the importance of staying hydrated and they showed the students which sports drinks contain the most sugar. The players explained how doing some kind of physical activity, even stretching, can make a big difference in being healthy and fit.
The players also talked about their favorite rivals on the playing field, what they like to do in their free time and what they do before a game to help them win.
