This brings to mind playing basketball in junior high school back in the early 70's. We were not allowed to drink water during practice.(With a water fountain right there in the gym). Yet he made sure we all took salt tablets after practice. Coach's reasoning was that water might not be available during the game so you'd better get used to going without it. Guess it was a major inconvenience to him to provide access to water during the games. What a moron. Explains why he coached at the junior high level for 30 some years.
