What's everyone doing to keep the kids cool and hydrated during these hot summer tournaments.

We are freezing sqwincher freezer pops the night before and putting them in a cooler with dry ice. If you bust up the dry ice put it in a bag put half on bottom then the sqwincher freezer pops and the rest of the dry ice on top they will stay frozen all day. It's an electrolyte popcycle and the girls love them. We have used them for the last year during the summer and it seems to really help cool the girls off after a game.

My dd's last team used to use rags kept in a small cooler of icy water and Ammonia Spirits.  Coincidentally, she has a tourney tomorrow and asked me if I'd make some of those "funny smelling rags".  

I found this on the internet-

Ingredients for ammonia water and use:

2oz. bottle of
"Spirits of Ammonia"
(at your local drugstore)
Actually it's Aromatic Ammonia Spirit U.S.P.
3 bottles make 4 gallons
1 gal. plastic bucket (some use a playmate type cooler).
About 4-7 washcloths.


Fill bucket 1/2 full of ice, pour 3/4 bottle of "spirits of ammonia" into bucket for each gallon, fill the rest of bucket with water and mix. Place washcloths into bucket and stir around a couple of times. When player comes off field and into dugout area, pick up washcloth, wring out excess and wipe down arms, face (DON'T suck on washcloth), neck (front and back), shoulders, chest, etc. It really is effective while held on back of neck. And please don't inhale to a great degree, only mildly.  Next day, team will be asking for it.

If players are young, coaches should help them.
Please don't let them DRINK it!!!!

It really seemed to work well!  But I have no idea how safe it is...may need to ask a doctor if you know one.
