Young Crows take to the trees

High Ropes Challenge Taylor Walker, Rory Sloane & Tom Lynch challenge the Crows first & second year players on a high ropes course.

Adelaide’s first and second-year players took on a high ropes challenge this week.

As part of the team-building exercise, facilitated by Venture Corporate Recharge, players were tested mentally and physically at Woodhouse Activity Centre in the Adelaide Hills.

With the assistance of teammates, the young Crows ascended eight metres to complete a series of obstacles, designed to take them out of their comfort zones.

The session culminated in the ‘Leap of Faith’ where players jumped from a high-rise platform, to grab onto a trapeze out in front of them.

Leaders Taylor Walker, Rory Sloane and Tom Lynch and coaches Don Pyke and Scott Camporeale were also on hand to lend support.
