The Nutrition Oasis serves as a resource room, providing fuel for athletes before, during, and after training. It includes access to protein and carbohydrate recovery drinks, Gatorade, fresh fruit, and bagels for all Olympic sport athletes. A new and improved Oasis opened during the summer of 2013 and includes a much larger space to accommodate a full-service smoothie bar, nutrition education area, food prep and storage space, an additional sports nutrition office, and room for small catered events. This space allows the Sports Nutrition Program to continue to improve how it serves Virginia Tech student-athletes from a food and nutrition standpoint.
Gatorade bars and multi-vitamins are also available in the sports nutrition office.
A chocolate milk recovery drink, Rockin' Refuel, is available to student-athletes to recover properly from hard workouts and practices. This beverage compliments the Virginia Tech Sports Nutrition philosophy of using whole foods as much as possible to enhance performance and overall health.
Hours of operation: Monday - Thursday 7:15-11 am and 2-7 pm, Fridays 7:15-11 am and 2-5 pm.
