SODA-FREE SUMMER

Keep your body hydrated this summer and challenge yourself to not drink soda! Try to drink at least five glasses of water every day - especially before, during and after practice.

 

STAY SAFE

Stay safe! Always remember to fasten your seatbelt, apply sunscreen and wear your helmet. Keep a clean smile by brushing your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day.

 

SPREAD KINDNESS. NOT GERMS.

Good hand washing is the first line of defense against the spread of illness. Wash your hands with warm soapy water for 20 seconds. If you can't wash your hands with soap and water, hand sanitizer is a great alternative.
