Hydration During Practice for Athletes
Hydration and nutrition are the two most important aspects of your athletes recovery and training. If these two components are not exceptional, your athlete will be more prone to injury and overtraining.
Studies show that athletes practicing their sport, training, or actively recovering, NEED 16 FLUID OUNCES OF LIQUID…EVERY HOUR.
Now, if your athlete is not yet fully grown, you should scale this appropriately. For a 60 pound girl, you should use approximately 10-12 ounces of fluid per hour.
With this type of increase in fluid, it’s critical that your athletes eat a well balanced diet that is appropriate for their energy output.
We don’t want to increase fluid intake without making sure your athlete is getting great food into their body.
