Roundnet Tournament Nutrition Strategies

How you prepare for a roundnet tournament in the days and weeks prior – as well as the day of, and the days after the tournament – can have a huge effect on your performance on the day of the tournament

Preparing yourself multiple days ahead of time in terms of nutrition, hydration and proper rest are crucial to playing your best on tournament day.

Being prepared and confident in your mid-tournament nutrition and hydration plans will only help your tournament performance! 

Unfortunately, it does not matter how many cut serves or tweeners you practice before the tournament – if you are unable to play your best due to dehydration, improper fueling and refueling, possible cramping and even serious injury

Take care of your body, YOU deserve it! 

Hydration Recommendations

Water Intake:

A good rule of thumb for athletes to follow is to drink at least an .5-1 ounce of water per pound of body weight throughout a typical day (e.g., someone weighing 160 pounds should drink 80-160 ounces of water a day).

Sweat rate per individual may vary so check the color of your urine leading up to, during and after the tournament! ‘Clear and copious’ in regards to your urine, is a great little rhyme to help with being aware of your hydration. 

I like to add pink himalayan salt to my food and sometimes I’ll pour a nickel sized amount in my hand, and drink that with a cup of water. High quality salt, such as himalayan pink salt, which also contains other minerals will help prevent cramps and keep you playing at your best! 

Rehydration During A Tournament

7-12 ounces of water about 15-30 minutes before tourney.

Drink about 6-8 oz of water for about every 15-25 minutes of activity.

Replenish your minerals lost through sweat by adding in some high quality salt, as mentioned above.

Listen to your body!

“With the health and safety of everyone on our minds and in our actions, I wanted to create a home based/limited equipment workout program, while attempting to make it as roundnet specific as possible!

I think it is important when playing roundnet to be a well rounded ‘mover’. 

When it is appropriate, being able to perform skills with a combination of strength and power. 

While also having the cardiovascular endurance to last 6+ hours in a roundnet tournament. 

Training for the needed agility and mobility, as well as the anaerobic efficiency, to sprint down a ball on defense and sprint back to the net to hit the ball, while also demonstrating the balance to avoid touching the net.”
