LITTLE ROCK (KTHV) -- It's hot and it's affecting everyone from adults to children, but do you know how to beat the heat?
The summer months mean kids playing sports outside. When temperatures reach extreme highs, it's important to keep tabs on those kiddos.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate - that's what the trainers and physical therapist at D-1 Sports preach to every kid that comes into train.
"We make sure they know it's not just in here they need to drink water, but when they are just playing around outside it's important to keep water near you," says Anthony Lucas, facility coordinator of D1 Little Rock.
According to KidsHealth.org:
Our bodies, which create a tremendous amount of internal heat, are normally cooled through sweating and radiating heat through our skin.
