When it comes to teaching young athletes about hydration, you have to make it memorable!

And the fact of the matter is, everybody goes to the bathroom, so everybody can check — even kids.

So the easiest way to do this is to ask them "what color is your urine?"

If it looks like apple juice, they may be dehydrated. If it looks like lemonade, they are probably hydrated.

Remember, hydration is paramount to the health and success of young athletes, so this is one of the most important lessons to teach!
