You have seen those commercials a million times. A professional athlete leaves the locker room after the game or practice, fully showered, with a towel around on their necks. That is the way it supposed to be. You play a game or practice, then take a shower, get dressed, and go on with your day.

At Frisco High School, the girls athletics teams practice during first period. The window between the end of practice and the start of second period is usually not enough time to shower and clean up for the day. “It varies,” says soccer player Sarah Davis, who is a sophomore at Frisco High School. “We usually have about twenty minutes, but that’s not enough time for a shower.”

Preparing for second period can take a long time because there are so many girls in the locker room so close together. “An extra ten minutes to get ready would make a big difference to be able to take a shower,” said sophomore Sterling Moore. Part of the problem is that it takes a few minutes to cool down from the morning practice. “If I had time to take a shower, I would probably dress a little nicer,” said Moore. “Time for a shower would make the rest of the day much better…for everyone.”
