Home > WELFARE > Hydration

Dehydration is common in many sports, especially in high temperatures and at high altitudes.

The body loses water and important blood salts like potassium.

Vital organs such as the kidneys, brain, and heart can't function as they require a certain minimum of water and salt.

For more information on hydration and heat preparedness, including the recognition and risk minimisation of heat illnesses please visit the Heat Preparedness pages of USA Football's website.
