Spartans Battle Heat Early in Training Camp
First Practices Of Season Have Been in High Temperatures, Humidity
Wisconsin High school Football practice isn’t quite in full swing. That comes next week, when pads start popping.
In Superior, Bob DeMeyer’s Spartans have battled high heat and humidity during the first few days of camp.
The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association recently set guidelines to keep kids safe, including number of practices, how long kids are on the field, and of course, water breaks.
In addition, DeMeyer and his staff have been preaching other ways for the kids to stay healthy and beat the heat.
“It’s more than X’s and O’s and getting in the weight room and lifting, getting bigger faster, stronger,” said DeMeyer. “If you’re sleeping, you’re eating right and you’re hydrating right, that’s very important.”
The Spartans’ season opener is Aug. 19th against Merrill at Superior’s NBC Spartan Sports Complex.
