Diet for netball - Top level performances require smart nutrition - that’s why VIS netballers Liz Watson and Kate Moloney choose fish for protien and Omega-3. - Supported by WSNet's HerMoJo programme
Getting ready for a match? It’s often the last 15 mins that winners win . . . or is it when losers lose? Sometimes you just run out of energy in those closing minutes. Could it be the fuel you’re using? Even before you start playing big competitions it’s worth getting the right fuel for a match or tournament.
Before – Avoid eating big meals within 2 hours of exercise. For an effective pre-game snack, try fruit, low fi bre carbs or cereal bars.
During – between quarters, on the subs bench or at half time, top up with a couple of Jelly Babies for fast releasing energy.
After – your body will be crying out for carbs, protein and fl uids so plan to eat something within 30 mins. Sometimes you feel less hungry then, so a yogurt, glass of semiskimmed milk or a sandwich is perfect. You can take it as soon as you come off the pitch, perhaps with a banana. A more structured, yet light, refuel might be an omelette with juice or water.

International – we’re currently working to get NETBALLMoJo translated (into Zulu, Xhosa, Swahili etc.) and digitised. Keen to work with UK NGBs and International Federations to help get the ‘Empowerment through Sport’ message across. Digital editions can be distributed virtually free (e.g. 50 Rupees) and delivered directly, circumventing local (often misogynistic) prejudices – we believe that gives WSNet a unique momentum that can really change the lives of girls in both western and 'third world' countries. If you can help please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest.
