Why Nutrition Is Crucial for Lacrosse
(According to an NCCA Division I Champion)
Considered by many to be the fastest ball game on two feet, lacrosse players must be in peak physical condition.
“Ideally, they have the endurance to run up and down the field (150 yards) and still be able to compete full speed for another shift if necessary,” says University of Virginia’s head coach Lars Tiffany.
Tiffany should know: He guided Virginia to back-to-back national championships in 2020 and 2021.
In college, lacrosse players train 17 to 18 hours per week during the season and 10 to 12 hours per week in the off-season. Sometimes, with all these athletes are juggling, not as much thought goes into how they’re fueling themselves. But proper diet and hydration are critical, says Tiffany, and it’s not hard to tell when this is off.
“The most obvious example that comes to mind is counterintuitive at first,” he says. “When we train with the team in the morning, more often than not, when an athlete is with the athletic trainer saying he doesn’t feel well [and sometimes proceeds to vomit], it’s actually due to not eating breakfast, which often means he is dehydrated as well.”
