Water Bottle Sunglasses Lip Balm with Sunscreen Comfortable Shoes After Sun Lotion with Aloe Play your best: Do not become a victim of Florida’s heat and humidity. Staying hydrated helps to maintain athletic performance and reduces the risk of exertional heat illnesses (i.e., heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke). During play, water and/or a sports drink would be the preferable beverage. However, fluid consumption during meals can include drinks like milk and juice, as well as sports drinks and water. When you become thirsty, you are already dehydrated! The first indicators of dehydration are thirst, irritability, and general discomfort. If the dehydration progresses the signs and symptoms may include headache, cramps, chills, vomiting, nausea, head or neck heat sensations, and decreased performance. If you experience any of these symptoms during play, ask your coach or a tournament official to contact the athletic trainer. A few tips: Drink fluids frequently and throughout the day, not just while playing Drink at least eight cups of fluid a day Carry a water bottle with you at all times Don’t just drink when you’re thirsty Avoid excessive caffeine Stay out of the sun whenever possible; enjoy the beach during the evening hours Wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 Drink plenty of fluids the days prior to tournament play How to tell if you’re getting enough fluid If your urine is the color of lemonade, you should be well-hydrated. If your urine is the color of mustard, drink more water!!!
