UH readies itself for season with retreat to clear minds
The Cougars took a small trip to the Woodlands this past weekend for a team retreat to focus on the upcoming season.
The coaches and players took part in activities to keep morale high prior to the Cougars’ first tournament.
“We get away from the city for a few days and come together to establish goals and get our mind right for the beginning of the season,” head coach Jonathan Dismuke said in a release.
“This weekend was about establishing a championship culture for us and building what we want to become in the future.”
Two decorated Navy SEALs spoke to the team, giving them a pep talk about the concepts of camaraderie and loyalty.
“The Navy SEALs are one of the most respected organizations in the world. The culture they have created is second to none,” Dismuke said. “Their hard work, dedication and sacrifice have established Navy SEALs as an example for the rest of the world.
“I couldn’t think of a better group to speak to, challenge and inspire our team, and we were very fortunate to have them come out.”
The Cougars first tournament is the Gopher Invitational Sept. 11-12 at Spring Hill Golf Club in Wayzatta, Minn.
