In the early morning of September 24, with the sun shining, the Durham Attack Volleyball Club prepared to head to Camp Walden. 200 athletes and 40 coaches and chaperones boarded buses and began their three hour journey for the annual club bonding weekend. This weekend is anticipated by all athletes and coaches as it marks the end of the tryout season and the start of the volleyball season.
Under the direction of Ian Eibbitt and the Direct Camp staff, teams were presented with a number of sessions that allowed them to quickly learn more about each other, challenge themselves and develop team goals and a mission for the upcoming season. Team activities included the low ropes course, rock climbing, the Inuit blanket toss, the Great Race, and an Escape Room. Teams worked collaboratively to develop their identities and mission statements for the season, using this united vision to guide their successes for the season.
Our team bonding weekend, is important to our season, as it allows all coaches and athletes to create a cohesive unit that will support them throughout the season. The skills obtained over the weekend will prepare teams to overcome challenges during the season. The Durham Attack Volleyball Club is proud of this unique program and grateful to Ian, and the staff for their leadership.
