“You are what you eat”. Centre Court Logistics requires multiple hours a week of on-court practice and additional hours of off-court conditioning. Players that do not nourish their body adequately will not perform as well as those that do. In order to create consciousness about good eating and hydration habits, we require our players to submit weekly dietary logs. Snacks should only be from the fruit and vegetable group. Potato chip is not a vegetable. You should only drink water, and juices without high fructose corn syrup. Soda is not allowed. Dietary compliance will be made evident through a player’s poor performance.
In addition to monitoring dietary intake, we are serious about our players’ hydration and electrolyte levels. We require that all players come with a refillable water bottle. We will provide a cooler with fresh water for refilling during lessons and training. We will also be monitoring how much water is used from our refilling station to ensure that our players are drinking all throughout practice. One of the most important electrolytes that can be lost during a strenuous practice is Potassium. In order to maintain adequate potassium levels, we recommend that children add coconut water to their water bottles or eat bananas and other potassium-rich foods when snacking.’
