Gatorade, Powerade, and other energy drinks are not really built for young athletes. In fact they are down right nasty. Krush Sports Performance detests them and says as much in their "War on Sugar", and now the Canadian Government is on board as well. These drinks are loaded with sugar, some with caffeine, and other morbid chemicals! The result of feeding youth these addictive drinks can also reduce their cognitive function, which ironically makes them worse athletes. Addiction to sugar, which is always a good thing, can cause many cranky side effects, up to and including death! (If death is a side effect). Have look at the links/video that are posted for supporting evidence. Do your research and stop killing your children.
