Just as we use training to improve technique, proper nutrition can help the athlete gain the most out of athletics. Nutrition provides the athletes with the energy reserves needed to compete. Since our meetings are on Saturday mornings there may be a tendency to skip breakfast. This can lead to reduced energy reserves and nausea during competition. On the other hand anything more than a very light meal should be avoided any later than an hour before competition. It is important that parents encourage their children to have a proper diet to ensure that they can compete to the best of their ability.
NOTE: The Centre does not subscribe to any particular nutritional guidelines nor promote itself as being a nutritional expert. The Centre expects that parents will take the proper measures to ensure their children’s nutritional needs are met.
