During the early season practices it is cold and sometimes rainy. If that is the case, then please layer your child with outer and under layer clothing. The clothing should be blue, white or black in color. We suggest clothing such as:
1. Polypropylene full-sleeve jersey (worn under the equipment). Many kids prefer the UnderArmour brand.
2. A thin water resistant breathable top
2. Polypropylene long underpants. Many kids prefer UnderArmour.
3. Water resistent running warm up pants
4. Thin gloves liners (such as those worn under ski mittens)
Don't dress your child in a winter coat or ski pants since we will run a lot and they will overheat.
ALSO: Bring your own water bottle....and most importantly drink water about 1 hour PRIOR to any athletic endeavor (HYDRATE-HYDRATE-HYDRATE!!) If your thirsty after the first 15 minutes of practice/game - ITS TOO LATE!!!
