Today at ELITEAM...
We pledged to MAKE IT COUNT, to push ourselves, and to have fun! After orientation and exactly one hundred high knees tires, campers made their way to the RPC Gym for some intense "name games", followed by group rotations through the slalom course, the numbers game, the rock walk, and more tires! After refueling with a big dinner of spaghetti and meatballs, we finished the day with pole agility and crazy relays... trying desperately to tire them all out!
Coach Molly: I loved when Logan R. came running around the corner of the quick feet slalom and high fived the tree! It was awesome.
Coach Tasha: I loved when all the girls in Poundcake immediately banded up in one big group and took a tour of the dorm— room by room, so they could meet everyone.
Coach Conor: My highlight happened on the fast feet slalom course when Curt sang “doo a dooo dee” as he made his way down the course. Still finishing with a speedy time of 17.27 seconds.
Coach Zack: I liked when Madison exclaimed during the Rock rotation “It was challenging because you could feel the burn and had to keep going”.
Coach Doug: Our "Numbers Game" was awesome! The teamwork was very impressive, with each group evaluating their performance, learning from their mistakes and creating a new focused strategy with each attempt.
Coach Kelley: Fun to meet some of our new furry ELITEAM friends while visiting the dorms... "Avalanche", "Hobbs" and "Pandy" in the boys dorm and too many to name in girls dorm!

Lucas S- No challenges today. I just had fun!
