Extreme Heat - Practice Suggestions
With temperatures in excess of 100 degrees this week we want all players to be safe and stay hydrated at practices.
Please err on the side of safety and use the following guidelines:
1) Advise players to drink water/sports drinks prior to, during and after practice.
2) Coaches bring extra water for the players who don't have any
3) Take extra short water breaks and advise players to take at least a little water even if they are not thirsty. By the time they are thirsty they may already be dehydrated.
4) Use shade or a shade tent if possible
5) Feel free to cancel practice
