Life of a Student Athlete: Tip of the Week

Tip of the Week: Prep for the game: eat well, sleep plenty and think positively.

It is important not to stay up late the night before a game and not to sleep in either. When you wake up eat food high in protein and carbohydrates such as eggs and a bagel with peanut butter and depending on what time your game is, eat a good lunch as well. Remember, water and drinks high in electrolytes will help sustain your energy for the duration of the game. During the time before the game, try to use as little energy as possible and think about the best outcomes regardless of how tough your opponent may be.
