Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Dear Region 13 Coaches, Referees, and Parents,
A reminder that temperatures on the fields will be HOT this weekend, not very humid, but HOT.
Please use common sense and make sure that we are ALL properly hydrated - players, coaches, referees and spectators.
Hydration should start today ... and not tomorrow right before your game or at the game.
Coaches and referees, BEFORE the game, please discuss how you are going to handle water breaks, halftime, etc. Please remind players that they can go to the touchline for water at any time as long as they remain on the field while they do so.
Parents, BEFORE the game (preferably today), be sure your child(ren) are hydrated. Also, please keep in mind that parents may choose to have their child(ren) not play. It's a personal choice.
Parents need to sit on their team's touchline, regardless of where the shade is, so please bring shade for yourselves and for your players when they are not on the field. I ask a parent on my team to bring a pop-up tent every week so our subs have a shady place to sit and the kids can rest in the shade at halftime.
Coaches and referees, thank you for volunteering so our kids can play.
See you on the field!
