Sports Teams Participate in the US Marine Corps Training
Bluefield, WV- In April of 2014 while attending the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Convention in Nashville, TN Coach J.J. Oliver witnessed the United States Marines Corps leadership and teambuilding exhibition.  At that time I decided that this would be a great event for my student-athletes to participate in to develop leadership within our program after losing 5 seniors and to provide an opportunity for team building skills.  I signed up to receive more information about the program and its offerings.  In mid-May Captain Nicholas C. Harwood and Captain David M. Grant came to BSC and spoke with me about the program as well as told me some of the benefits.  It was during this time that I became sold on the idea of bringing this experience to BSC.  Later during the summer when speaking with Captain Grant I told him I thought the program would be beneficial to the entire athletics department and I invited all of the coaches to involve their teams.
