Heat Acclimatization

As we begin our fall sport season I would like to remind you of the importance of heat acclimatization when dealing with our student athletes.  Please remember that even though we have had a somewhat mild summer students may not be accustomed to the rigorous workouts that will be expected from them at the beginning of the season.  Coaches should not expect students to “get in shape” in the matter of a few days.  The process is gradual and takes time.
If the temperatures start to climb into the 80’s and 90’s during the next couple of weeks coaches should keep a close observation on their student athletes for heat related illness.  There are some excellent resources that can be used to help prevent heat related illnesses.  I have listed these resources below.  Schools and coaches should also remember that the NYSPHSAA does have a heat index policy which must be followed.  I have attached the policy to the email for your reference.

I hope you all have a safe and successful interscholastic season.  Best wishes.
