U11s Endurance Squad: WATER BOTTLES!!

We are aware that the weather has been very warm recently, to say the least! Some athletes have consequently begun to bring water bottles with them.

This is against the rules that were established when we returned to training after lockdown when, for Covid-related reasons, we stipulated that NO bottles were to be brought by athletes.

Some athletes bringing bottles is likely to cause problems with those that have adhered to the rules, and furthermore we do not wish to risk bottles being carriers of the virus.

There is sufficient evidence in the running world that hydration is not an issue with the length and type of training that we do.

During the day of training, it is imperative that parents ensure that their children are sufficiently hydrated in preparation for the session. If this is done, there should be no need for athletes to bring water.

In case ONLY of emergency, the coaches will have a bottle of water.

We thank you in advance.
