Type 1 Diabetes

The unpredictability of Type 1 could affect your NorCal Rush Soccer player’s performance on and off the field. Without calling your athlete out of a group, have a conversation about how they are going to control their levels and keep track of how they are feeling beforehand. Allow them to take water breaks and quick opportunities to test levels when needed. Have a solid understanding of the symptoms of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia so that are you aware if you need to intervene.

As a coach, you want to push each member of your team to his or her highest potential. Don’t see Type 1 as a roadblock; see Type 1 as a challenge that your athlete takes on every day at practice!
