Basketball is a highly intense sport that requires its players to have speed, agility, and power throughout the game. The peak energy level needed for basketball can be maximized with good hydration and nutrition pre- and post-court.


Promote Hydration —

“The 3 Pointer”

A common cause of early fatigue during

exercise is dehydration. Each athlete should

have his or her own individual sports bottle.

Drinking cool, flavored fluids, like sports

drinks, encourages more drinking and helps

athletes replenish fluid losses. Research shows

that losing as little as 2% of body weight

(3 lbs for a 150-lb athlete) can affect a player’s

performance. In fact, when playing at a

2% level of dehydration, players can experience

a 10% to 15% decrease in shooting percentage

during a game.


Pre-Court Fuel

Basketball players need guidance on what to

eat before they train or compete. The pre-event

meal is important because it keeps the athletes

from feeling hungry, helps the athlete prepare

mentally for competition, and provides fuel

and fluids to the muscles. Each athlete needs

to experiment to identify which foods feel best,

both physically and mentally. Here are a few tips

to consider when planning a pre-event meal:
