Abstract

High school athletes are often dehydrated when practicing or playing their respective sports, this causes them to suffer from cramps, fatigue, and headaches which limits their ability to perform well in their sport. In an effort to prevent deyhdration, I will test athletes from my school district using a bio-electricscale. I am going to be comparing different sports as well as male and female results to see which sport and gender has the most hydrated athletes. Also, I will be giving the participants of the study a survey to see how hydrated they think they are and I will see if they have misconceptions about their true hydration levels. From this research I hope to be able to draw conclusions about student athlete hydration level and help prevent dehydration in the future.
