Life of a Student Athlete: Tip of the Week

Tip: 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. Breakfast and lunch should contain foods high in protein along with carbohydrates. 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.
