Abstract: Nutrition is an important aspect of young athletes' sports performance since it allows for normal growth and development. Macronutrients, micronutrients, and fluids in sufficient quantities are required to supply energy for development and activity. Young players must learn what, when, and how to eat and drink before, throughout, and after-action to boost performance. Nutritional requirements for high sports performance comprise proper calorie consumption, fluid intake, and mealtime. Student-athletes and their counselors are frequently misled about nutritional supplements. This paper identifies the nutritional demands of youth sports, discusses common misunderstandings, and investigates athletes' nutritional understanding and nutritional relevant information. Nutrition for youth sports is essential not just for sports achievement, but also for development, progress, and general health. Dietary advice should be based on the most recent scientific research; when counseling student-athletes, administrators, and guardians.
