Big Bear Retreats for Sports Teams, Running and Track Clubs winners are friends, build friendships at retreats
Sizing Up The Reason; retreats
In girls' soccer, sometimes being successful on the field is the byproduct of being friends off it.
Knowing that connection has driven coaches, like John King of Esperanza (Anaheim, Calif.) and Chuck Morales of Santa Margarita (Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.), to intertwine team-building that have nothing to do with soccer into practice.
"We take a retreat to the mountains and have [the players] hang out for three days," said King, in his 10th season. "It's had a major impact on our program.
"It's good for the girls to get to know each other. That way, when it's time to take to the field for battle, you are not alone - you're playing with friends. And when you are playing for friends, you give extra effort."
King recently moved the retreat from the preseason to the week before the postseason, and he said it directly contributed to the team's 27-0-4 showing last season. The Aztecs won Southern Section and Southern Regional titles last year.
"It's a long season, a lot of games," he said. "The players are tired, run down. So now we do [the retreat] right before the postseason to rejuvenate us."
Former Monte Vista (Danville, Calif.) coach Greg Fish and Morales also built retreats into their schedules. In fact, players from Santa Margarita and Esperanza, now both perennial California powers, once ran into each during a retreat to Big Bear Lake in California.
So what exactly happens during those trips? Last year, it snowed during Esperanza's trip to the mountains.
"We had snowball fights for three straight days".

Not only sports teams, but corporations frequently send employees to retreats to build teamwork. The employees can be high-salaried executives, or an entire department with managers and their employees. The intent is to create a better understanding of how employees can work optimally together, develop creative problem-solving skills and boost overall productivity. Retreats can have programs that test and build teamwork, such as lake boating, rock climbing and team scavenger hunts. In the end, employees should be able to see a link between their temporary goal at the retreat and the long-term goal of the company.
