Be Careful Exercising in Hot Weather

Football, cross country, tennis and golf are all beginning to train for their fall season. With humidity and heat indexes well over 100 degrees in South Carolina, it is the coaches’ responsibility to know the signs of heat stress and what athletes are subject to in high temperatures.


All athletes are subject to:

  • Heat Cramps
  • Heat Syncope
  • Heat Exhaustion
  • Heat Stroke

Ways Coaches Can Prevent Heat Stress:

  • Encourage athletes to drink water
  • Provide gradual acclimation to hot weather
  • Know the physical condition of athletes
  • Encourage athletes to wear appropriate cool clothing
  • Observe your athletes and look for any signs of heat stress
