Navy SEALs work with students from Rosemont, JFK and CKM
About 185 SCUSD students participated last week in physical fitness and team-building sessions instructed by a team of elite Navy SEALs from a training base in Coronado near San Diego.
The students participated in several physical drills that built confidence, team work and character. They were tested to a point where they learned to depend on each other to obtain a successful environment and achieve completion of the task at hand.
“All of the students responded very well and did an outstanding job at the event,” said John Smith, district athletic coordinator. “I have no doubt they enjoyed the experience, even with the difficulty they encountered.”
Smith added: “My hat is off to all the students at Rosemont, McClatchy and Kennedy for their efforts and completion of the Navy SEALs Challenge. They represented our district with honor and enthusiasm.”
