TIP OF THE WEEK
Just like the heat, cold weather can present potential health hazards.
Cold weather directly affects the respiratory system, which may make breathing more difficult---especially for athletes with asthma. It also may take longer to warm up the core temperature to prepare for sports.
Low intensity, dynamic movements prior to engaging in a sport can help warm up the body and prepare muscles for higher intensity activities. Use a dynamic warm-up prior to play and static stretches for after to increase flexibility when muscles are more elastic. It is also very important to maintain hydration and warm up sufficiently.
