UGA Sports Nutrition


The University of Georgia supports the importance of nutrition for athletic performance by housing one of the largest collegiate Sports Nutrition departments in the country. With 2 full time dietitians, 1 fellowship dietitian, and a strong staff of assistants, graduate assistants, and undergraduate interns, we are equipped to offer a unique, competitive edge helping student athletes perform at their personal best on and off the fields of play.

Sports Nutrition at UGA stands by our philosophy of: Prevent, Protect, Perform.

Prevent: We are committed to addressing nutrition-related problems before they happen. Stress fractures, chronic inflammation, and anemia are just a few conditions our team can help prevent with proper nutrition.

Protect: We provide student athletes with foundational and sport-specific nutrition knowledge to protect from injury and illness, sustaining durability throughout collegiate careers and beyond. Educating student athletes on topics such as supplement safety protects not only their well-being, but also their eligibility.

Perform: We expose student athletes to our consistent message, providing the education necessary to perform at an elite level. We also provide teams with functional snack options within locker room fueling stations to enhance the outcome of training sessions. Nutritional support for competition is also a key priority to ensure individual energy and nutrient demands are met.
