Nutrition for Youth Athletes - Session 1
“Nutrition has an important influence on athlete health, development and performance readiness. Athletes who are unable to manage energy intake to support energy requirement for exercise are at risk of low energy availability, which could lead towards the development of the Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S) syndrome.

Based on recent research with the indoor men’s volleyball program, players are at risk of RED-S. It also appears that poor health and performance outcomes are associated with players at higher risk of RED-S. This may increase the risk of injuries/illnesses over the season, delay athlete development and negatively influence performance readiness planning for major competitive events.

This is a 2 part series designed to provide athletes with the guidance to understand the importance of nutrition and how to manage their nutritional needs for volleyball performance.

Session 1 (March 7th):

1. Describe low energy availability and the association between RED-S and athlete health.
2. Describe the association between RED-S and athlete performance.

Session 2 (March 28th):

1. Describe the eating behavioural factors associated with increased risk of LEA/RED-S
2. Review strategies to inform dietary behaviours to lower the risk of LEA/RED-S to improve athlete health, development, and performance readiness”.
