Children need a lot of hydration to feel good and play hard.
Kids need fluids before they leave home. Otherwise they have headaches, act tired, or they drink so much during practice they get stomach cramps.
Have your child to drink water or other non-carbonated drink an hour before practice. Have them drink their "age in ounces" one hour ahead of time. A six year old would drink ~ six ounces, and a eleven year old would drink ~ eleven ounces.
If you forget to bring a drink to the field, the concession stand is chock full of selections. We sell water, sports drinks and other alternatives.
After the kids are done, check out frozen choices. We carry a Squincer Squeeze. This fun tasty treat has electrolytes to help after a workout.
