Golden Eagles - Thu, Aug. 4, 2011

Twenty-eight CU student-athletes, coaches and staff are spending the first week of August at Gainey Ranch in Glen, Montana.

Chip Huber, dean of student engagement, said the trip is "to help equip our student athletes to have greater godly influence in their team settings, on the CU campus and in other external settings outside CU."

Upperclassmen from various CU sports teams will work through curriculum focused on five key dimensions of influence for athletes. They will also complete team building initiatives, hike in the mountains, participate in group games and competitions, have Bible studies and grow personally through experiences and reflections.

This year's theme "Seeking to become people of greater godly influence… through character, relationships, actions, hard work and service."

Speakers at the retreat include Huber, Mike Riemersma, director of Champions of Character and Director of Athletics, Dave Grube.

Derek Kingshott, junior forward on the National Champion men's basketball team, said he's excited for the trip.

"I'm not really sure what to expect, but it sounds fun and I hope to grow a lot," he said.
