Fluids, fluids, fluids

Players should have 12-16 ounces of fluid up until 30 minutes before the activity. It's also important for players to continue hydrating throughout the activity. The worse the heat and humidity, hydration should take place more frequently. Additionally, players should start re-hydrating within 20 minutes of the conclusion of the activity.

Heat Exhaustion

Players with cool, moist, or flushed skin, heavy sweating, headache, nausea, dizziness, or muscle cramps may be experiencing heat exhaustion. This condition occurs when, because of high humidity or restrictive clothing, sweat is not properly evaporated and the body cannot cool down. To assist a player experiencing heat exhaustion

  • Have the player lie down in a shady spot and elevate his or her feet.
  • Remove the child's shoes, shin guards, and socks.
  • Apply cold packs to the armpit and scalp areas.
  • Have the player drink water or an electrolyte solution.
  • Dampen the player's skin with cool cloths.
  • Fan the player to help evaporate excess sweat.
  • If the player's parents are on hand, have them:
    • Remove the player's shirt.
    • Apply cold packs to the groin area.
