What education do you plan to provide to your athlete? How do you plan to encourage healthy behavior change if appropriate?
Athlete Case-Study Project/Presentation: There will be a project opportunity that will allow students to assess presented case-studies. Students will be given a case-study on an athlete or physically active individual. The goal will be to assess this individual, their risk factors, recognize their goals and develop a plan that will best help meet their sports nutrition and health needs. Grading criteria for this project will be discussed in class and is included below.
Grading criteria will include:
- Athlete Background: Summary of the athlete or physically active individual (brief description of the athlete: age, gender), a brief background and description of their sport, nutrition history (typical daily intake if available, their noted food allergies, food preferences or intolerances), describe why this athlete needs guidance (is this athlete gaining sports nutrition guidance for performance or better hydration, weight gain, or weight loss?), does this athlete have risk factors, and what is their daily training routine?
- Athlete Anthropometrics: Height, weight, BMI, % IBW, body composition, weight history if available. Is this athlete at risk of any health conditions based off this information?
- Athlete Nutrition Needs: Calculate the athlete’s current nutrition needs based on health or performance goals (kcals, protein, micronutrients if appropriate)
- Sports Nutrition Recommendations: What are your recommendations for this athlete/active individual? Does this athlete need to meet with a sports dietitian?
- Sports Nutrition Goals: What are measurable goals that you hope for your athlete to achieve?
- Education: What education do you plan to provide to your athlete? How do you plan to encourage healthy behavior change if appropriate?
- Monitor and Evaluation: How will you monitor and evaluate the athlete’s progress?
