Female athletes should aim to achieve energy balance in order to maintain health and have a high performance output. The purpose of this study was to investigate energy availability (EA) among members of a medium sized Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) women's volleyball team, and to describe exercise energy expenditure (ExEE) during practices, game warm-ups, and games. Total daily energy expenditure was assessed over 7 days using the Bodymedia Sensewear Mini armband while energy intake (EI) was measured with dietary food logs. Body composition was assessed using air displacement plethysmography (Bod Pod). Energy availability was calculated using the equation EA=(EIkcal - ExEEkcal)/kg FFM. Participants consumed 3435 (±1172) kcal/day and expended 3479 (±604) kcal/day. Mean EA was 42.5 kcal/kg FFM/day across all 7 days, whereby 2 participants fell below the 30 kcal/kg FFM/day threshold. Further, participants expended 511 (±216) kcal, 402 (±50) kcal, and 848 (±155) kcal during practices, game warm-ups, and games, respectively. Overall, the participants were relatively weight stable, and should be encouraged to continue fueling their exercise and high ExEE needs with appropriate nutritional strategies.
