Student-Athletes Practice Team-Building Exercises

Coach Scott Ward led McDonogh's new Athletics Leadership Academy cohort at its first monthly meeting on Wednesday, September 14. After student-athletes discussed the responsibilities and challenges of being a team captain, they headed to the gym to play a team-building game. Players verbally guided their blindfolded teammates through a set of cones—an exercise that proved to be great practice in effective communication. Throughout the course of this year, the student-athletes in the academy will work together to strengthen their leadership skills.
