Sleep can be defined as a relatively stationary and recurrent state of being where rest and relaxation replenish the mind and body from the preceding stretch of wakefulness (Caia et al., 2018). The past decade has seen numerous studies that have advanced our understanding of the function of sleep (Phillips, 2018). Sleep is essential for healthy brain functioning and energy balance maintenance. Beyond the brain, every other body system also benefits from quality sleep. During sleep, physiological systems are maintained and improved (Phillips, 2018). Also, research has shown that sleep is important for physical health through sustained bone and growth repair and the promotion of normal cardiovascular, metabolic, and immune functioning. Accordingly, sleep studies are essential for both our current and future knowledge about the necessity of sleep for human function.

Decades of research have explored the basis of sleep and its effects on human health. However, much less research has looked at how sleep affects athletic performance, particularly in young athletes. This presentation will share a review of the literature which focuses on the relationship between sleep and athletic performance in young athletes, aged 15-24. A systematic search of the literature in four databases was performed, and retrieved articles were screened and either excluded or selected based on specific eligibility criteria. Upon synthesizing the data, three themes related to sleep and athletic performance emerged. These were physical performance, cognitive performance, and illness and injury. In general, the trends displayed an association between a better quantity and quality of sleep and improved physical and cognitive performance, as well as a reduced occurrence of illness and injury. These findings suggest that athletic performance in young athletes can be significantly improved by better sleep hygiene due to the associated improvement in the areas of physical performance, cognitive performance, and illness and injury.

Attendees of this presentation will leave with a much stronger understanding of how sleep affects the body and specifically, how young athletes can use sleep to gain a competitive edge and fully benefit from the power of quality sleep.
