Nutrition for Winter Sports
High school winter sports such as basketball, wrestling, indoor soccer, swimming and indoor track may need some different nutritional issues going into winter training. Often times indoor athletes underestimate their sweat rate and find they are more tired towards the end of the week. Nutrition tips for winter athletes:
- Be consistent with drinking water even though you may not be thirsty.
- Keep up with two snacks a day between meals
- More Vitamin C during this time of year may be necessary to fend off looming cold systems.
- Always refuel after your evening practices.
