The boys’ basketball team and their dads traveled with the coaching to staff to the Riversport Rafting Center in Oklahoma City this past week for team building and goal setting.
The weekend started with rock climbing, trampoline basketball, super slides, kayaking, and ropes courses. After a couple of hours of activities, the party of 22 rafters hit the water. The Riversport facility is home to Level 4 rapids that are created with six water pumps that individually can fill an Olympic size swimming pool in about 10 seconds. The groups navigated the water with near perfect success with only one group getting capsized.
After an hour of rafting, the party traveled downtown for dinner and finished up with several hours of culture-defining, goal setting, and opportunities for the fathers and sons to share the hopes for the coming season.
