This week we had another SportsLeader Team Camp. This time with Eastern Hancock High School - a public school east of Indianapolis.
They brought 28 players, 4 coaches and 4 dads plus we had 5 other men observe and help in different capacities.
Toward the end of the camp I asked them to write what they liked best about the camp on an index card. Most of the players mentioned the same elements, which is no surprise. Some mentioned various aspects. Here are some of the stats:
"The competition" - 11 players
"Team bonding" - 10 players
"The Campfire" - 8 players
"The public speaking presentations" - 4 players
"The cold shower" - 3 players
I had never before witnessed such a passion for a cold shower. I guess 93 degree weather helps.
"Dodgeball" - 2 players
"Movie Clips" -1 player
