    What sports are we going to do there? I saw the list on the paperwork we filled out, but I just saw a video where the SLS students were wrestling. Do we get to wrestle there?

    Sort of, you do some combatants in this huge pit. It's more similar to jiu-jitsu but if you can already wrestle it should be close enough where it's not a problem. The day we did it it was over 100 degrees out and we had to take water pretty much every five minutes.

    You will play a LOT of dodgeball and probably some basketball too.

    I second what USMA2016 said. There was ALOT of dodgeball. Some basketball in the gym. There was a 2mile run at a 20 minute pace (haha) on the last morning PT. Basically if you're athletic you're going to be more than fine. They don't own you here, so they baby you pretty hard.

    At least, thats how session 1 was

    I'm so excited I honestly can not wait until the first week of June.
