Thursday we had a film session at 7pm then we had dinner at 8pm to go along with some serious ping pong games. Last week we did the same thing. At this time of year we want to keep our guys as fresh as possible - mentally and physically! Our guys seemed to enjoy it so much last week that we decided to do it again today. It is a great "team building" opportunity.
Our new locker room and lounge are keys in allowing us to do these things. The space we have provides us with room to relax, watch TV, eat and play games like ping pong or pool. When a team hangs out together it definitely plays together. It builds team chemistry.
Now, I must add that Ryan Harp and I DOMINATED the ping pong table! Team Harp/Doherty went 8-0 as we smoked the competition! Fun time had by all...except those that were defeated!
