We’ve had some rain over the last few days, but today was definitely our rainiest so far. There was also a big drop in the temperature, so we had to break out some sweaters and jackets for the first time this Session. Lucky for us, Koop seems to have it on good authority that the next few days will include just a little bit of rain, some clouds, and SUNSHINE. We’re holding him to it!
Regardless of the weather, it was a day filled with valuable lessons! Coaches spent some time talking about the mental game involved in sport, highlighting the importance of focus and concentration, which can make or break any play in a split second. They also spoke to the value of leadership, noting that any athlete can wear a ‘C’ on his jersey, but that doesn’t automatically make him a leader. Leadership is earned with hard-work, good sportsmanship, and the ability to be a good role model for others.
It was another excellent day on the water, with a few more catches among our fisherman (a big mouth bass and a sun fish) and several BSC campers showing off some impressive moves on the knee boards and water-skis. Hopefully by tomorrow the sun will be shining and the water will be warm for our swim test.
