History

Established in 1996 from a multi-displinary group of Sports Medicine Australia, SDA now boasts members across Australia and the world.

We recently celebrated our 15 year anniversary and commemorated with a special edition of our monthly member newsletter, FUEL, which highlighted the many achievements as well as what our past presidents are up to now - read more in the October FUEL edition

SDA also led the way in developing a Consensus Statement on Fluid and Energy replacement during exercise. While it’s a few years old, many of the principles still apply.

We recently dug up the very first newsletter produced for SDA where you can read about the birth of SDA, what the new topic in Sports Nutrition was back then, and who the first people to form the SDA board were.  First SDA newsletter from 1996 (1.46MB)
