Athlete Nutrition Education
At South West Sydney Academy of Sport we are fortunate enough to have a resident Chef in the midst of our administration staff. The Academy takes nutrition for athletes very seriously as this is often the difference between winning and losing, recovery, long term success in sport and many more factors.
You will find many unique recipes on this page as well as many great resources that can be implemented into your routine or your child's routine to help them improve their nutrition and overall performance not only in sport but school as well.
We are not nutritionists at SWSAS but we do work closely with many great sports nutritionists and dietitians to help our athletes better educate themselves on what to do in the kitchen. Whether stuck at home training or away on camp, athletes in SWSAS are taught what it takes to fuel our bodies right for sporting performance.
