Nutrition, Fueling & Hydration

If young athletes aren't staying hydrated, they could be exposed to heat illness, cramps, and life-threatening overheating. What should we be encouraging our kids to consume? Find out during Nutrition, Fueling & Hydration

Athletes have plenty of options when it comes to hydration including water, Gatorade, Powerade, and even energy drinks. But not everything is created equal.

Join us virtually as we welcome Dr. Marissa Bello, visiting instructor in the School of Education, as we explore:

  • What are macronutrients and why do we need them?
  • Fueling for training vs. competition.
  • Are all hydration drinks created equal?
  • How hydration translates across different sports.

Nutrition, Fueling & Hydration is part of our Pushed to Play webinar series taking a look at topics that are important for youth athletes and their parents.
