Abstract

Sports nutrition knowledge plays an important role in the success of athletes as it can dictate the likelihood of possible injuries and increase performance. The purpose of this study was to determine if there is a relationship between nutritional knowledge and the rate of perceived exertion and fatigue in Division III women’s soccer players. Division III women’s soccer players (n=24, age 18-22) completed a sports nutrition questionnaire. Before each game, participants completed the Hooper Index. Session-RPE was determined after each game. The results showed that there was no significant correlation between sports nutrition knowledge and rate of perceived exertion and fatigue. Sports nutrition questionnaire score and Hooper Index scores were not significant (p=0.533). Sports nutrition questionnaire score and s-RPE scores were not significant (p=0.686). It is concluded that the rate of perceived exertion and level of fatigue is not correlated with the amount of sports nutrition knowledge.
