Let’s face it, as parents and coaches we can not be with our athletes 24/7, and as they get into Middle School and High School, our influence becomes less and less. As a result, I am a huge advocate for educating athletes from a young age to take an active role in their training and game day preparation (yes, I know they don’t always head our advice, but we have to try!). One area we can easily educate our athletes on is hydration.
Why Do You Need To Be Hydrated?
Put bluntly, athletes who are not properly hydrated before practice or competition are not going to perform as well as they could be.
