Warm Up & Stretch Before Games Practice
Coaches should set aside time before every practice and game for kids to warm up properly.

• Stretching before practice and games can release muscle tension and help           prevent sports-related injuries.

• Ensure your team trainng starts with about 10 minutes of jogging or any light       activity, and then stretch all major muscle groups, holding for 20 to 30 seconds.

Remember to Hydrate

Learn the signs and symptoms of dehydration and other forms of heat illness.
Make sure kids have a water bottle and encourage them to stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water before, during and after play. 

Encourage them to drink fluids 30 minutes before activity begins and every 15-20 minutes during activity.

Establish mandatory water breaks throughout practice and games – don’t wait for your team to tell you they’re thirsty
