We have our kids take two salt tablets before and two salt tablets after each practice. So, during two-a-days they're getting a total of eight. Then, they took two before going to bed for a daily total of ten. This allows us to limit their water intake at practice so that we're not wasting a lot of time with water breaks and stuff like that.
This past Friday we were playing in the heat. Our JV middle linebacker was cramping so he started pounding pickle juice. On his first play back in they ran a dive and he was there to meet the ball, just flatbacked the runner. And then promptly vomited pickle juice right into his face. It's moments like those that make me enjoy coaching JV football.
My player would've been the ball carrier...
