Space is VERY LIMITED at the hotel because the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are playing a home football game that weekend, so we strongly encourage you to CALL NOW to book your room if you intend to stay with the band.

btn25  August 5, 2016 – Heat Acclimatization Reminders

Just a reminder that ALL students should be preparing themselves for the HEAT next week.   Students have the responsibility to:

  • Drink water prior to, during, and after band rehearsals and outside performances.  Start drinking a lot of water this week!  Each student should come to rehearsal with a FILLED 1-gallon water jug.  Don’t make the water TOO cold as it can be a shock to the system in the heat.
  • Inform the band director in writing of any history of heat illnesses.
  • Establish a regiment of outside activities to acclimate yourself to hot weather.  Acclimatization is the process of becoming adjusted to heat.
  • EAT breakfast every rehearsal day!  Try not to eat dairy, as that curdles in your stomach in the heat.  Do NOT come to camp without eating breakfast!  Suggestions: Eggs, peanut butter sandwiches, dry cereal – ANYTHING low in sugar and without dairy so you have something in your stomach!
  • Replace salt after practice in modest amounts.  Do not take salt tablets unless directed to do so by a physician.
  • Notify your instructors if you begin to feel signs of lightheadedness.

NOW is the time to get prepared!  Stay hydrated and stay safe!
