Why Nutrition Is Crucial
for Field Hockey
(According to the Head Coach of the US Women’s National Team)
Field hockey requires athletes to have high levels of physical and cognitive fitness over a 60-minute match. “It’s impossible to train and play at the intensity required without appropriate fueling,” says Greg Drake, head coach of the US Women’s National Team.
On the field, players need to be able to change direction quickly, perform challenging stick work and skills, and make good decisions—all while under intense physical stress. These demands become even more challenging as the match progresses.
It’s impossible to train and play at the intensity required without appropriate fueling.
—Greg Drake, Head Coach of the US Women’s National Team
“With the exception of goalkeepers, contemporary field hockey athletes typically play in short bursts of six to 10 minutes for a total of approximately 40 minutes of each 60-minute match,” says Drake. In that 40 minutes, an athlete can run up to 4.9 miles and sprint up to 30 times.
To build the staying power they need, field hockey athletes often spend eight to 10 hours a week practicing on the field and an extra six to eight hours per week in the gym.
So without good nutrition, they won’t perform their best. Besides negatively affecting strength and stamina, nutrient deficiencies can affect an athlete’s ability to receive the ball under pressure, make quick decisions, and complete passes with precision.
