The thunderstorms held off until after 6:30pm which allowed us to have some fun AND get a workout in before dinner. The group went through four stations on the field and in the woods. They got a full body workout with their rocks and a lesson on stilts. They took on the Nitro Swing with the added challenge of transporting water, and also worked the cargo net with ducks. It was a ton of fun, but all good strength, balance, coordination and teamwork training.
After a spaghetti and meatball feast with broccoli, salad and fruit, the rain began to fall so we moved the action inside for some agility work. Although it was all about perfection, it’s pretty funny how fast things turn into races with athletes this age. The competitive juices were flowing with everyone pushing each other. The rain soon stopped so we headed back outside to finish up with some pole agility games.
Tomorrow we go hard early with Ropes Courses and Leg Routines. In the afternoon Professional Gibbon Slackline Athletes will be here to give us a demo and spend some time working with the kids on their slackline skills. www.gibbonslacklines.com
The rain helped cool things off. The dorms are quiet and we’re all psyched for another great day tomorrow!
