Abstract

[Extract] An effective nutrition plan is critical to success in all
aquatic sport disciplines for athletes at every stage of
their development. A well-designed, periodized training
program remains the fundamental cornerstone of
peak performance outcomes, but this will mean little
if nutrition needs are ignored. Specialised sports nutrition
experts should apply evidence-based science to the
intake of key macro- and micronutrients essential to the
health, physique and performance of all athletes. Coaches,
parents and health professionals in the athlete support
team should recognise that these needs are specific to the
individual and are different for each of the aquatic disciplines.
The needs of athletes also vary through maturation
and during periods of high energy expenditure, the taper,
competition and post-competition recovery.
