For my family, spring means sports, sports and more sports.
With three girls, we have three different sports – softball, soccer and lacrosse. It is great to be outdoors and watch them have fun on the field, but I know I need to be ready with important essentials to keep them ready and moving. At this time, lacrosse has come to an end and soccer is almost done too. I am happy to report that my oldest is in the playoffs for softball!
At this time of year, the sun is out longer and the days and evenings are much warmer. I find that there are simple necessities that help you help your athlete.
- Be present – Sometimes, just being there can make all the difference. I attended almost every game. It helped that the games were scheduled in the evening and on the weekends.
- Practice, Practice, Practice – Although I haven’t played softball in a long time, I supported her by helping my daughter and her friends get picked up and dropped off home after practice. Since I am home early from work, I did my best to carpool some of the girls home. In addition, we found a local place where she could practice with a professional to improve her swing and hit.
- Sunscreen! – No one needs a burn while enjoying a game. I make sure to pack a sunscreen stick in her bag so that she can reapply when needed.
- Keep your athlete hydrated. – By planning ahead, I have drinks like ice water and BODYARMOR chilled and ready for her. Whether she is playing first base or in the outfield, it gets hot and she gets thirsty. It is important to constantly hydrate.
In addition, I take a big back filled with fruit, water, snacks and drinks with us. We have been adding natural BODYARMOR to our bag. NOTHING ARTIFICIAL! I like that! And so do my girls.
BODYARMOR comes in great tasting flavors like fruit punch, orange mango, strawberry banana, tropical punch, lemon lime, mixed berry and grape. I liked the Blackout Berry flavor as my favorite but without a doubt, my girls chose Lemon Lime as their absolute favorite!
BODYARMOR is #1 natural sports drink.
