Stay Hydrated In The Summer Heat

Schools are letting out and summer vacation is almost here. It's everyone's favorite time of year with cheer camps starting, vacation, sweet treats and sunshine – there's so much to love about summer! 

With so much fun to be had each day, it's hard to know if you're drinking enough water.

Here are a few easy tips to help you stay hydrated in the summer heat!

1. Set a goal and achieve it

As athletes, we are naturally driven to accomplish our goals. If you set a goal for 2 liters a day, then don't stop until you have achieved it! Keep a water jug near you to always sip on and stay hydrated.

2. DIY Water Bottle

Make drinking water fun! Whether it's a customized water jug for camp or a bedazzled Starbucks cup, find something you enjoy carrying around and drink up!
