Team Building, Take #1

Forest City Divers make the most of a cancelled pool practice.  Divers along with their coach, joined together in a team building excursion of apple picking at the Dwarf Apple orchard in Byron, Ontario.  Then headed off to Fleetway for some bowling fun.  Diving is an intense physical and mental sport which demands focus and attention during rigorous training sessions.  These team building excursions are one way to relieve stress and to build strong support network among their peers away from the pool setting.
