I'd like you to work with the wrestling coach to help him understand the importance of providing sports drinks, in addition to water, during a wrestling tournament.
The wrestling coach cares a great deal about making sure his team wins the Allegheny Valley Conference (AVC) wrestling tournament. You schedule a brief meeting with the coach to discuss your plan to assist with the team's food and fluid-replacement plan for the tournament.
The school simply can't afford sports drinks and energy bars for all 200-plus participants during the AVC wrestling tournament, and the AVC doesn't provide any funds for these types of expenses. All athletes participating in the tournament will be instructed to bring snacks, beverages, and meals. Chilled water and cups will always be available next to each warm-up mat and competition mat, near the stands, and in the locker rooms.
Are you ready to continue your discussion with the coach?
