okay I need your opinions/thoughts...my pa ds plays football and I didn't realize until our first game last week that the coaches/helpers walk around with water bottles and squirt water into the boys mouths all during the game. Of course I had his own water but it was cool to do what the others were doing....At practice we all use our own, and I never thought/knew about what they did at the game...I was really nervous, about it. We had a follow-up visit with the dr. today and he said that my ds should have his own, because even though the boys are told not to put their mouths on it, it could still happen. When I talked to my ds about it he seemed so disappointed.....that he couldn't be squired in the mounth like everyone else...I said you can, but they would need to use your water bottle....Just another disappointment I guess, but it is what we have to do to keep safe.

I never let Ryan use the squirt bottles. They always end up in someone's mouth and dirty hands are all over it. Our community football league has a concession stand and they do sell things like Reese's and Snickers. I was asked last year if they should eliminate those due to Ryan, but I said no. He will always use football gloves (whether it is 90 degrees or 30 degrees) on the field and will only use his own water bottle.
We prepared him beforehand so it was no big deal. Just like he never uses public water fountains.

HI
i am sorry your son is disappointed, personally, i would not want to share a bottle either way.
my daughter had a coach tell her that she was happy when she was not on her bus, this is a high school team where they travel a lot.
sports can and probelry are going to be hard for you and your son, because unfortunately a lot of coaches dont understand.
hope things look up

thanks for the replys...It worked out really well today at the game, he had his own bottle, and the game was so exciting he didn't care and nobody else seemed to care or notice.
