My guess is that if you report him, he will be forced to allow water, and you will suddenly see your ice time reduced or disappear. Crappy choice, and I wouldn't fault you for staying quiet. I would just recommend that you drink a lot before the games, and be careful, look up the symptoms for dehydration, and watch for them during practice/games.
Bingo. Don Cherry said this was regular practice in his day but then they discovered how dangerous it is.

Your coach is an idiot. I would seriously talk to a school official about it.
