TEAM BUILDING PROGRAM @ CFTC w/ Ed Ronan
Ed Ronan – Bio (CFTC member and CrossFit athlete)
I have been coaching boys and girls hockey for over 15 years and each season I have organized some form of team building exercise to bring my kids together more quickly. In 1993, I won a Stanley Cup Championship as a member of the Montreal Canadiens. We were a good team but certainly not favored to win the Cup – that was for the star studded teams like the Mario Lemieux led Pittsburgh Penguins or the Los Angeles Kings and “the Great One”, Wayne Gretzky. I believe a key difference in that championship run was our play as a team over individualism. That playoffs we won 11 straight overtime games – a record that may never be broken. Those one goal games are decided by sacrifice – and every player on our team played a role. We sacrificed for one another every day at practice and in games during the season and we were well prepared that playoff run. We grew “Stonger Together” (the CFTC motto). I recently ran a Team Building session for my U16 tier one girls program to launch our fall season and generate a sense of excitement while allowing new teammates to grow together. We have decided to offer this program to teams in our community as a show of support. Check out the video below.
At CFTC we offer a fun, 60 minute team building session at NO COST! We have an organized set of team challenges that force cooperation and teamwork. It is a great way to bring kids together outside of their normal environment – to engage, think, work together and just have some fun. It would be a great exercise for teams at the start of their season, entering a tournament, having some internal personality conflicts or just acting as an educational opportunity to demonstrate the value of teamwork over individualism. Every team will fall short of ultimate success without a very strong “team-first” culture.
