Learn the best way to hydrate with this mini game that requires you to answer sport-specific questions like, “Two to three hours before exercise I drink…” or “If you have to cut your weight for a ‘weigh in,’ you can safely dehydrate and re-hydrate without compromising your performance within __ hours of competition.”  

Once you make it through your sports’ questions, you are taken to your race  or game where you must remember to hydrate every 15 minutes.  Winning this game is dependent on your hydration knowledge, which is one of the things that your actual performance is dependent on.  Get to know it well!
