This 2023 spring season, the Herd Women+ kicked off the season with a Return Camp featuring a number of guests. The program solidified partnerships with HighQ Sport & Wellness and Yasuke Yoga bringing them in to work with our team.
The day kicked off kicked off with some much needed and appreciated group yoga and breathing work.
Alessia McIntosh of HighQ brought her expertise in neuroperfomance and mental skills training to assist our busy student athletes in daily activity accompanying their intensive rugby training. Alessia brought the team through thought processes surrounding nerves, internalized pressure, and moving through adversity.
Return Camp also brought in area rugby players Lauran Glover (DC Furies, U.S. Army 7s Rugby, All Armed-Forces Rugby) and Karida Harris (U.S. Coast Guard) to run teambuilding and leadership activities.
The program finished the day with a dance session lead by our own Senior athlete Te'Vonya Jeter.
The day was a successful way to bring the team back together and reset the competition mindset for a full Spring season.
