Tips for Practicing in the Heat

 Tips for Practicing in the Heat

 
Note that we talk about water. WATER. Drink any other substance
 after the game unless otherwise recommended by a doctor.
 
Hydration needs to start BEFORE you come to the field, if you want it to be effective at the field. All participants should consume 8 -12 ounces of water about over the 30-minutes before arriving at the field. 
 
Small children do not regulate body temperature as well as adults. Watch your child closely. Keep them well hydrated.
 
A cold wet towel on the back of the neck does wonders. Bring one in a zip-lock bag, you'll be amazed!
 
HAIR UP! This is a grown-up responsibility that too many of us slack on. Get their hair up and tied back.
 
Shower, bathe or swim after the game.
 
The weather is part of life, this is a great chance for your child to learn about surviving under adverse conditions. Adjusting and adapting to their surroundings... and you thought we just teach soccer!
