Turn Up The Heat! Summer Work Outs Are Here!
Mon thru Thu---- 8:30am -11:00 am for 10th -12th grade

-10th-12th grade players must make 24 of 28 work outs

Here are a few important tips that can help your young athlete
acclimate to the heat and keep players safe from getting over
heated or get a heat induced illness.
1. Ice and cold compresses can be used to refresh and bring
down the body temperature quickly. They should always be on
hand at practice, but make sure you supply your son with what
he may need so there is no question he will be safe.
2. Have electrolyte water, or a SPORT drink, like a Gatorade
Please do not use energy drinks! Energy drinks have caffeine
and taurine, which will dehydrate an athlete and make an
athlete prone to cramping, headaches and fatigue.
3. Avoid a sugary diet and snacks like candy! They may feel
they get a quick pick me up but it will burn quickly thru a young
athlete, and can also increase dehydration, leading to
headaches and fatigue.
4. Know the signs of dehydration: dry mouth, thirst, headaches,
dizziness, cramps, irritability and excessive fatigue.
5. Know the signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion: nausea or
vomiting, dizziness, weakness, pale skin, increased heart rate,
combativeness and stomach cramps.
6. Do not have your son practice or compete if coming off an
illness the next day. For example a cold, asthma attack or flu
like illness wears down the body and hydration. Let him rebuild
his tolerance to the sport again for a couple of days.
7. Eat at least one hour before practice with a balanced meal-
again free of unnecessary sugars like soda or candy.
8. Post practice and game: Cool down the player with
electrolyte fluids, and bring his temperature down in a “cool
down” mode. Showers should be luke warm and then a good
dinner. Proteins, vegetables and a slow release starch like
brown rice or sweet potatoes and your son will feel stronger and
endurance will be improved.
9. Lastly, but maybe most importantly… there is a lot of hype
about being tough and pushing through the pain. Use common
sense when it comes to playing in the heat and knowing the
warning signs and each players limits. Too often these signs are
ignored and it ends up being tragic news that not only could
end an athletic career, but a life… it is just not worth it!
