Hydration and Fluid Replacement
Cold water will be readily available during rest periods, which will be increased depending on the WBT. Ifa student requests water during an unscheduled time, they will be granted permission to hydrate themselves immediately.

Hydration and fluid replacement is a daily process. Students should hydrate themselves before, during and after practice and games. Meals should include an appropriate amount of fluid intake in addition to a healthy diet. Each student will be personally responsible for weighing themselves in and out, monitoring their water loss after each practice or event. The recommended intake for water loss during practice is listed in the next chart.
