Even though the school year is over, many high school athletes continue to practice over the summer to stay in condition. Others train for competitions and athletic meets. This is pretty much the norm for many student athletes, but this summer’s weather conditions might be concerning.
Recently, North Carolina has been going through a heat wave. While temperatures hitting the upper 90s and low 100s isn’t unheard of during summer, that doesn’t usually happen this early. Owing to this phenomenon, young people who training outdoors are at risk of getting dehydrated or suffering from heat stroke if they aren’t careful.
