Calhoun Athletics hosted its annual four-day retreat for fall season teams at the beautiful KenMont and KenWood Camp in Kent, Connecticut. What started as a way to get teams more field time at the beginning of the season has grown to encompass much more than skill development. Athletes still get invaluable time contributing to a technical foundation and training with their teammates, but relationship-building and off-court/field/course work also take center stage.
Workshops (on mindset, motivation, communication, etc.) and team-building activities offer athletes the tools to be leaders on and off the court, field and course while gives teams an opportunity to focus on culture creation. The retreat emphasizes Calhoun Athletics' core values and sets the tone for the entire season.
