My teen has try-outs for a very elite team coming up in October. Yesterday was the informational session and about 90 kids showed up (just as coach predicted would happen). Realistically, about ten of those kids are going to make the team. I surely have my fingers and toes crossed that my son is going to be one of them. He plays year-round, but he's really doubled down on training, and is in the gym or on the court most days trying to improve the skills he feels need the most work. On the weekends, he has me taking him to the outside courts. It's hot out there, so we make sure to bring along plenty of ice cold drinks. I always insist we have water, and he also likes to bring along flavored drinks. This time we brought Electrolit ZERO.
We took three flavors along, Berry Blast, Fruit Punch Splash and Lemon Breeze (there are many other flavors to choose from). My son doesn't mess around when it comes to time spent on the court, this child is committed, so he did drink all of these and some water too because we were there for most of the day.
The drinks were the right choice, but I'm not sure the court was... we went to one we don't usually go to (trying to mix things up) and many times, whether his shots made the basket or not, the ball rolled off into the brush that looked pretty surrounding the court but turned out to be a pain for my teen. I guess that's why this court was empty, others were already in the know.
