Team Sports Nutrition

With Dan Richardson MSc, SENr

Dates & Venues

    This comprehensive course is tailored to athletes, coaches, and nutrition enthusiasts seeking to optimise performance in team sports, while also considering athletic development. Whether you're involved in football, netball, rugby, hockey, or any other team sport, understanding the relationship between nutrition and athletic progression is vital for achieving peak performance.

    Key areas of focus include:

    1. Fuelling Tactics and Performance Enhancement: Explore the role of macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) in fuelling athletic performance. Learn how to strategically adjust nutrient intake to enhance energy levels, endurance, and recovery.

    2. Distinguishing Training and Match Day Nutrition: Understand the distinct nutritional needs of training sessions compared to competitive matches. Discover how to tailor dietary strategies to meet the specific demands of each scenario, optimising energy availability and performance outcomes.

    3. Planning Pre-Game Meals for Peak Performance: Delve into the science behind pre-game nutrition and meal timing. Learn how to design balanced meals that provide sustained energy, promote hydration, and minimise digestive discomfort, setting the stage for optimal on-field performance.

    4. In-Game Fuelling Techniques: Explore practical strategies for maintaining energy levels and hydration during intense game situations. From halftime refuelling protocols to side-line snacks, discover effective methods for replenishing glycogen stores and electrolyte balance to sustain performance throughout the match.

    5. Integrating Athletic Development: Recognise the importance of aligning nutritional strategies with the developmental needs of athletes at various stages of their careers. Whether working with youth players aiming to build foundational skills or elite athletes striving for peak performance, learn how to adapt nutrition plans to support long-term athletic progression.

    By merging principles of sports nutrition with considerations for athletic development, this course equips participants with the tools needed to enhance performance, optimise recovery, and support overall health and well-being in the context of team sports. Whether you're a coach seeking to maximise your team's potential or an athlete aiming to gain a competitive edge, this workshop provides invaluable insights into the intersection of nutrition and athletic success.
