Student athletes are spending their days practicing in the hot sun, but can do so safely.
New guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics indicate healthy young people can play out in the heat and humidity, as long as they get plenty of water and breaks.
Experts say heat illness education is key for parents, coaches and even players. The new guidelines say teams should have emergency plans with treatment available -- just in case.
They also suggest gradually increasing practice times and intensity over a period of weeks, to get youngsters' bodies used to playing in the heat.
