Combat & Weight Class Sports Nutrition Summit

The Combat & Weight Class Sports Nutrition Summit was held
April 7-8, 2024 in Las Vegas at the UFC Performance Institute

The Combat and Weight Class Sports Nutrition Summit will provide sports dietitians of all experience and other interested professionals a foundation of knowledge regarding the state of the evidence in combat sports nutrition.  The focus of this year's summit will be translating science into practice in areas that include managing injuries, illness and inflammation, hydration assessment and management, brain health initiative, hormone regulation and lessons learned from combative training among special forces amongst other topics.   There will be dedicated discussion time after each presentation to workshop the application to the variety of practice areas amongst the attendees.  Attendees can also expect to gain connectivity through development of a network of colleagues and mentors within the weight making practice area.

This event has been planned by ASPDA's Combat & Weight Class Sport Special Interest Group and intended for the SIG members. CPEUs from CDR are pending.

The 2025 Combat & Weight Class Sports Nutrition Summit will be virtual. Dates will be announced in the Fall of 2024.
