These triple-digit temperatures can be relentless, and pose a significant threat to those who aren't careful.
Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are two of the biggest concerns, especially for youngsters.
But too often they don't think about resting or drinking enough fluids, especially in the heat of battle.
Thankfully parents and coaches do.
Lauren Phillips says, "Throughout the day he's drinking a huge jug of water. Then about an hour before practice he'll quit and then go into practice and take sips, and afterwards start the hydration process all over again."
Coach Chris Milton says, "We educate them on yesterday was the day to get hydrated for today. We keep replenishing them. We set up a pop up tent so they can get shade, and we also have hydration stations set up for the kids."
Doctors say in the Valley heat, it doesn't take long for anyone to suffer heat exhaustion or even heat stroke, just a few minutes out in the sun.
Heat exhaustion symptoms include muscle cramps, pale moist skin and fever over 100.4, nausea and headaches.
You should move the person to a cool place and give them drinks containing salt and sugars. If there's no improvement call 9-1-1 immediately.
Heat stroke is much more serious, and can include symptoms like warm dry skin, fever over 104, rapid heart beat and confusion.
In this case, call 9-1-1 immediately and remove excess clothing and drench the skin with cool water and fan the body.
Taking preventive steps now will keep your kids on the field and safe.
