Heat Preparedness and Hydration

Environment, equipment and intensity can place athletes at risk of heat illness. Heat illnesses represent conditions resulting from heat stress, which can be imposed by several factors but usually result from the environment or the body creating the heat load itself.

Heat illnesses can range from minor to severe, and exertional heat stroke is considered a life-threatening emergency. As recommended by the Korey Stringer Institute. Check out the resources below to help your players beat the heat.
