Sports Nutrition at the PFC

Thursday, December 6, 2018 - 12:30 PM

The Perth Football Club have engaged nutritionist Julie Meek to run a sports nutrition program for the senior playing group in 2019.  This innovation has come about through our season review from 2018 and consultation with our Club Doctor, Joe Henry and Physio, Brett Fletcher.

The program will look at not only game day preparation, but will also help with injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Our introduction took place this week and will continue throughout the season. Julie and her assistant Liana Nici will be responsible for the implementation of the program, which will include diets, skin fold testing, recovery drinks after training and games. The session will also include food advice and direction for pre-game and also post game recovery.

This addition complements our introduction in 2018 of Lindsay Bunn, our running coach, and continues to provide our senior playing group with more off-field assistance to increase our on ground output and ultimately a continual move up the WAFL ladder.
