- Wear clean socks for every practice. These should be different from the socks you wore throughout the day.
- Wash and dry your feet after practice or games. Keeping them clean and dry will decrease the risk of getting athlete's foot.
- Wear shower shoes. These can be flip-flops or any open type shower shoe. These should be also allowed to fully dry daily.
