Summer Hydration

Attention all 2017 - 2018 Marching Band Students:
 
Happy summer to everyone - we hope that you are a having a fun and relaxing summer break.  Pre-band camp and band camp are about 1 month away and you need to prepare yourself now for the heat, sun and physical activity involved with these camps.  We want you to have a great time at these camps but we also need for you to be safe so here a few tips to help you prepare:
 
  1. Drink water and then drink more water. If you are thirsty then you are already dehydrated so drink water often throughout the day.
  2. Drink water prior to physical activity and replenish often
  3. Do NOT drink soda and sugary drinks.
  4. Spend a few hours outside every day to help your body acclimate to the heat
  5. Wear sunscreen - SPF 30 or higher; UVA and UVB coverage - cover all exposed skin while outside and reapply frequently per product label. Lotions are better than sprays. Apply prior to being outside so that your skin can absorb the product. UV rays are present on cloudy days too so wear protection even if it's cloudy
  6. If you march with a heavy instrument spend some time marching/walking with your instrument this summer so you can build up some muscles to help with the long days at camp.
  7. Invest in a good quality water bottle and bring it to pre-camp and after school rehearsals
  8. Be sure to eat a good breakfast with protein each day of pre-camp and band camp and drink water before going out on the field.
We hope you enjoy the rest of your summer break and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, July 18 for pre-camp!
 
Sincerely,
Your water hydration team and band nurses
