Some people have metabolisms that allow this to be done, albeit at reduced performance, of course.

Make absolutely sure you do not urinate. This is important.

While you normally should always try to be one of the first on the ice, allow your teammates and coaches to go ahead of you onto the ice-stay in the dressing room.

Best answer in the thread so far.

Hockey without water is just stupid. You're not performing nearly as well if you're dehydrated, does your coach even do any of the drills? Seriously, someone needs to put him through the same drills and deny him any semblance of hydration, if he gets thirsty he can lick the bloody ice.

During that game some of the players got an IV drip in the later overtime breaks. He may not have been drinking it, but Juice would need his juice somehow.

Your coach sounds like a complete muppet. All he is doing is lowering your performance and creating potentially dangerous situations.

Can hardly see this being true....unless the players are dogging around when they go for a drink and the coach thinks this is 'discipline'....

Your coach is betting the tightness of his O-ring that none of the kids he coaches gets injured due to his policy.

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.

Of course I did, hense I only quoted the dubious part. Just wanted the kid to know that over intake of water to compensate for his lack during practice could be worse than the dehydration.

If you are drinking a bottle of water in each of your classes throughout the day and replenishing it often, good for you! You are a smart athlete. Unfortunately, I would bet that less than 20% of the players on your team are properly hydrating each and every day. That means there are at least 12 skaters on your team who are doing serious damage to their muscles and internal organs every time they train. Kids cannot be expected to be experts on nutritional guidelines and the health needs of their bodies. That soda pop and McD's won't hurt, will it? No offense chap..but you are all teenagers who are still in the mind-set of, "I am invinsible. My body will rebound from anything I put it through." Obviously, your archaeic coach believes that same peice of garbage. Is he concerned about the health of his team? ...or the glory of winning the state championship? A championship title will look so much better on his resume than the acknowledgement of building the next generation of strong, healthy men. Listen to the advise from these other readers, but more importantnly, pay attention to your own gut feeling. Good luck my man!

Well my coach has coached for about 30 + years I think, and he has won 6 state championship titles. He has been the coach of the year for several years.

I drink 6 water bottles a day, usually about 4 before practice, which is after school. And I agree with someone who posted it already, that my coach is like Denzel is "Remember the Titans", with the no water policy. During games we are surrounded by tons of water bottles, but during the practices, especially the hardcore non-stop sprinting, Herbies, etc., is when us players really need the water. For some reason as well, my coach doesn't allow any of the parents to watch us practice. I mean, that isn't bad, but maybe he doesn't want the parents to watch what he puts us through...just an idea haha. There are a total of 4 coaches on the ice, and none of them suggest water, so we can't really just blame it on him.

Thats is completely ridiculous, regardless of his credentials, someone can get seriously hurt. If parents saw, this would be all over your local news.

What team and where do you play for?

What do you mean "for some reason"?

It's blatantly obvious.

That sounds about right. Your coach drives his players to physical exhaustion (on the ice 6 days per week?) so they'll be stronger for their games. If anyone questions his methods he's got a whole lot of trophies to back him up. He's been lucky so far that nobody's been seriously hurt (I assume).

There's a saying that whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. But what if it does kill you? If you don't believe any of the posts in this thread then do your own research on the effects of dehydration. What your coach is doing isn't right. If the assistant coaches support him then they're fools. I'm not trying to be mean -- I'm really concerned for you and your team mates.
