Today at ELITEAM we…
Collected rocks down at the river. Several campers chose to name their rocks… some of our “new friends” are Bob, Bertha, Chad, Roc, Q, Ryan, Lil cheese, Clarice, mini and Abby. Afterwards to all gathered with our rocks and pledged to become “Tougher, Stronger, Fitter, Faster” (our theme for the month). After stretching out and playing the name game, we broke into groups and rotated through four “Tougher, Stronger, Fitter, Faster” stations… 100 yard burpees (Tougher), Boxing (Stronger), mental fitness memorization game (Fitter) and the obstacle course (Faster). As you’ll read below, the obstacle course was a favorite and the burpees were torture! We just finished with dinner… spaghetti and meatballs. A coach just yelled “3 minutes!!!” so we are headed back out to the field for more action!
