Parents: Make sure your child is hydrated before games and practices

Drinking Fluids Before, During and After Sports Important For Children
Surprising, as it may seem, the most important part of an athlete's diet isn't what they eat, it is what and how much they drink. Hydration before, during and after exercise is especially important for preadolescent children because they have special fluid needs  compared to adults, or even teenagers. As a parent or coach, you are responsible for taking precautions  to prevent heat illnesses  in exercising children and making sure they drink enough fluids.
One of the most important functions of water is to cool the body. As a child exercises, his muscles generate heat, raising his body temperature. When the body gets hot, it sweats. The evaporating sweat cools the body. If the child does not replace the water lost through sweating by drinking more fluids, the body's water balance will be upset and the body may overheat.
To keep from becoming dehydrated , your child must drink fluids before, during and after exercise. To promote fluid intake in kids, fluids containing sodium (i.e. sports drinks ) have been shown to increase voluntary drinking by 90% and prevent dehydration  compared to drinking plain water. To ensure that your child is drinking enough, you should see that she drinks fluids according to the following schedule:
Drinking fluids prior to exercise appears to reduce or delay the detrimental effects of dehydration .
•1 to 2 hours before sports: 4 to 8 ounces of cold water
•10 to 15 minutes before sports: 4 to 8 ounces of cold water
•A good meal with containing water (e.g. fruits)
•Every 20 minutes: 5 to 9 ounces of a sports drink, depending on weight (5 for a child weighing 88 pounds, 9 ounces for a child weighing 132 pounds)
•Any time a child feels thirsty
•Encourage drinking fluids during timeouts and breaks
•Encourage drinking from their own fluid container and avoid sharing with others
•Encourage the ability to drink whenever they want and not to wait until they are told to take a break
•Adjust fluid needs during practice according to the weather , amount of equipment worn, and practice duration and intensity.
Post-exercise hydration should aim to correct any fluid lost during the practice.
•Within two hours: at least 24 ounces of a sports drink for every pound of weight lost
•Replace all fluids lost during exercise plus any lost after exercising (going to the bathroom)
•Eat a good meal with foods containing water
•Chocolate milk or a specially formulated sports drink containing protein in addition to carbohydrates are good recovery drinks that encourage recovery and hydration. The protein helps the body recover from exercise by enhancing muscle repair and by replenishing glycogen stores in muscles, which are a source of fuel during prolonged exercise.

Contribute to the Jeff Fox Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Jeff Fox Memorial Scholarship Fund is designed to create a scholarship fund to:
• Memorialize Jeff Fox; his character and being as well as his volunteer spirit and his many contributions to our community and its youth, especially through his involvement in the Piscataway Recreation Middle School Basketball League and Pop Warner football program.
• Award two annual scholarships in Jeff’s memory to two deserving graduating seniors at Piscataway High School. The scholarships, which will be awarded at the PHS Senior Awards Night program, will be given to a graduating football player who played Pop Warner and a graduating basketball player, whether a boy or girl, who played Middle School basketball. The recipients will be chosen by the PHS football and basketball coaches.
Our ultimate goal is to raise enough money to allow the fund to eventually be self-sustaining through interest earnings and dividends as well as future contributions.
We need everyones assistance to generate initial ‘seed’ money for the scholarship fund. Please consider making a donation in support of this very worthy endeavor. No contribution is too small or too large. All donations will be tax deductible once the fund obtains a tax exempt ID number.
