Joel full of praise for Calleva
With our players adjusting well to a training regime that has now become the new normal, Somerset County Cricket Club remain indebted to our Commercial Partners, without whom this transition would have been far less smooth.
One such company is Calleva Nutrition who develop and manufacture safe, drug-free sports nutrition products for the SCCC squad.
Head of Strength & Conditioning, Joel Tratt explains more. “Once again Clive Griffiths and his team at Calleva have proved that they are some of the best people to work with,” he said. “With all the current rules and guidelines that are in place you can’t have the guys eating, drinking or having things out of the same bags, bottles or containers. Therefore Calleva have individually packaged supplements for each of the players.
“That means that no one will come into contact with anyone else’s supplements and it’s also enabled the guys to take them away and manage their intake from home. This kind of support is invaluable. It makes my job easier and ensures that all the boys are all catered for and have the best possible treatment.
“Calleva provide us with carbohydrate gels which the players use throughout the season. They also supply a rehydration sachet which helps deal with sweat loss. That makes sure that we can effectively manage their fluid, salt and sodium intake. They are key to getting those vital nutrients replenished. They also provide the guys with whey proteins in a number of flavours to help with muscle and soft tissue repairs.
“These products are incredibly valuable to us and I know that the players massively appreciate what Clive and his team do for us.”
