Abstract

There is currently little known of the total expended energy of NCAA Division III field athletes. Total energy expenditure is the energy costs of the processes essential for life. Energy expenditure is important to measure so coaches, athletes, and training staff know the physical toll that field sports can have on the body and then can assess different modalities to help them improve training and recovery in order to optimize their on the field performance. These measures have been established for Professional, semi-professional, and NCAA Division I levels. It is important to determine the energy costs to play a NCAA Division III field sport. . PURPOSE: This study aims to explore the energy demand of male lacrosse and female soccer players in the NCAA Division III practices. METHODS: The variables were gathered by a Global Positioning System (GPS) which tracked the total distance traveled, calories expended, top speed, and intensity. GPS data was gathered from the University of Lynchburg Men’s lacrosse team (2020) and Women’s soccer teams (2018 and 2019).
