It’s Hot. What should my soccer player drink?

  • Adequate hydration is key to peak performance

  • The longer and more intense the exercise, the more critical it is to drink frequently.

  • Cramps, dizziness and fatigue are signs of dehydration


Fluid choices

Fluid choices

  • Cool fluids are better

  • Water is good but if your child needs something more palatable, a sports drink (like Gatorade) is helpful

  • No carbonated drinks

  • No Caffeine which will dehydrate


Before exercise

Before exercise:

  • 24 hrs before a game, adequate water and carbohydrates should be consumed.

    • One way to monitor this is the color of urine.

      • Clear or pale yellow indicates proper hydration, dark yellow indicates poor hydration status

  • Drink 20 fl oz of water 2-3 hrs before game,

  • Drink 10 fl oz of water 15 minutes before game


During game

  • Drink 10 fl oz every 10-15 minutes during game

  • For exercise longer than 60 minutes, a sports drink to add calories is helpful
