Drink during timeouts and breaks

To stay hydrated, kids need to drink fluids at regular intervals during exercise (about every 20 minutes), rather than in response to thirst, which isn't an accurate measure of hydration status. In fact, if your child says he is thirsty, he is already dehydrated. Consuming cool fluids during timeouts and breaks protects your child's health and optimizes athletic performance.
