Note(s): Position Statement: The position of The Society regarding caffeine supplementation and sport performance is summarizedby the following seven points: 1.) Caffeine is effective for enhancing sport performance in trained athleteswhen consumed in low-to-moderate dosages (~3-6 mg/kg) and overall does not result in further enhancement inperformance when consumed in higher dosages (≥ 9 mg/kg). 2.) Caffeine exerts a greater ergogenic effect whenconsumed in an anhydrous state as compared to coffee. 3.) It has been shown that caffeine can enhance vigilanceduring bouts of extended exhaustive exercise, as well as periods of sustained sleep deprivation. 4.) Caffeine is ergogenicfor sustained maximal endurance exercise, and has been shown to be highly effective for time-trial performance.5.) Caffeine supplementation is beneficial for high-intensity exercise, including team sports such as soccerand rugby, both of which are categorized by intermittent activity within a period of prolonged duration. 6.) The literatureis equivocal when considering the effects of caffeine supplementation on strength-power performance, andadditional research in this area is warranted. 7.) The scientific literature does not support caffeine-induced diuresisduring exercise, or any harmful change in fluid balance that would negatively affect performance.
