The Importance of Hydration for Young Athletes

The importance of hydration for good health and properly functioning body systems cannot be overstated, especially for the young athlete. According to researcher Dr. Susan Yeargin from the University of South Carolina, up to 75 percent of young athletes aged eight to 18 are dehydrated before they even arrive at practice. And because most athletes are only replenishing 2/3 of the water they lose after competition, they are in danger of consequences that include heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Hydration plays a major role in the health of the young athlete, which is why Cisco Athletic created this guide on how much of a sports drink or water the youth athlete should consume. You can view the guide below.
