warming up before starting. Cool down later to loosen the body’s
Apply sunscreen and wear a hat (where possible) to reduce the
chance of sunburn.
If a person receives a soft-tissue injury (a sprain or a bone injury),
immediately treat with RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation).
Schedule frequent water breaks during practices and games, and use
misting sprays to keep the body cool.
