The netball season is well and truly underway and we’re excited to announce that we will once again be teaming up with the Melbourne Vixens as the Official Nutrition Partner for the 2018 Suncorp Super Netball season!
Now in its third year, this is a partnership that we absolutely love with a group of women who represent what Dineamic is all about – busy people who want good, good for you food and more time for life.
How we work with the Vixens
We partner with the Vixens in a couple of different ways, the first of which is delivering food through our online store to the players so they can heat and eat when they need it, whether it’s getting home late after training or for lunch, brekky or snacking on the go - just like our other awesome customers who visit us in-store and online.
The team is also fed by the Dineamic Sports Nutrition (DSN) team through Dineamic Events (oh, did we mention that Dineamic also does catering & events?). Dineamic founder & former AFL footballer, Jason Johnson, heads up the Dineamic Events & DSN team and knows how much of a difference the right nutrition can have on performance at training, on game-day and for recovery. The DSN team works closely with Vixens Dietitian Kylie Andrew, to deliver a tailored menu of nutritious food to the team post matches and before jumping on a plane to head to interstate matches.
With wins in the first two rounds already under their belts this season, the team are in good form and are hunting down the premiership after coming so close to nabbing it last year. The team are in fine form with a mix of seasoned players and those who are new to the team this year.
Do the Vixens really eat the same meals that you buy online?
This is something we get asked a lot, and the answer (whether it’s Netball, AFL, A-League, NRL or any other code we feed) the answer is absolutely YES!
Our meals are designed as healthy, balanced, delicious meals first and foremost. Which means when our team are creating new meals we’re constantly making sure that they hit key levels of protein, carbohydrates, veggies, fat and sugar, all in keeping with the Australian Dietary Guidelines. And whether you’re a professional athlete or someone who is just plain busy there’s no arguing that that’s what we all need in our diets.
While our partnership with the Vixens is constantly evolving, one thing is constant – they love eating the food that we love making.
There’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing great things from the team this season, stay tuned as we’ll be showing you more from the players over the coming months as we cheer them on this year!
