The purpose of this project is to develop a nutrition curriculum for female college age water polo athletes to maximize their overall performance and prevent the female athlete triad. Specifically, this program will provide sports nutrition education for athletes, coaches and athletic trainers on the general energy needs of a female athlete for a combined endurance and strength sport.
The nutrition education program is comprised of information split into two classes involving the female athlete triad, macronutrients, portion control, micronutrients and hydration. After a review of literature, it was determined that female athletes are at risk for developing the female athlete triad and there are no nutrition education programs for female water polo players. The curriculum was not pilot tested but an expert panel reviewed the content and provided direction and feedback for the project. Documents were created to allow participants to evaluate the program upon implementation of the program.
