Coach Randy Almsted coordinated the weekend retreat for Park Center High School volleyball at Camp Courage in Maple Lake, MN. We ate weird food and they survived. Like figs and pea shoots. We talked about personalities and the pressure of playing well, as well as, found out that team is made up of individuals and individuals make up a team.
“Though unable to attend because of Minnesota State High School League rules regarding summer contact for coaches, Almsted said players learned about each others’ goals and personalities and how best to communicate.
The lessons were more than mental. Players were taught different stretching exercises and received tips on proper nutrition. Almsted and players agreed a new type of excitement was present last week when the team hit the floor for the first practice.”
