Why Nutrition Is Crucial for Softball
(According to an 8-Time NCAA Champion Coach)
“It is obvious that proper fuel and hydration have a tremendous effect on performance,” says Hall of Fame softball coach Mike Candrea, who led the University of Arizona to eight national championships—more than any coach in NCAA Softball history—in his 36 seasons. “Our athletes’ ability to maintain strength, flexibility, and focus are all a result of proper diet, hydration, and recovery. It’s hard to run a car without gas!”

As a result, nutrition and hydration are much-needed building blocks to success for a team that, in addition to their games, spends five days conditioning and three days in the weight room each week. “Softball is a middle-distance sport,” says Candrea. “Our game is all about short, efficient movements, so interval training and shuttles are the foundation for our training.”
Proper nutrition can not only help athletes maintain energy for intense training and competition, but it also sharpens their mental focus and improves their hitting game. Candrea adds that by focusing on nutrition and hydration, the athletes get another major perk. They can maintain their stamina and prevent injury throughout long seasons with heavy competition schedules.
