Washington Capitals Visit FBI Academy For Team Building Activity

Sometimes the usual routine of practice and games can be tedious on a team, especially one comprised of new players. After two tough losses, the Capitals took a break from their usual Kettler routines and hit up the FBI Academy in Stafford, Virginia for a team-building activity. Here are all the scenes from the fun-filled day.

Tom Wilson loves fighting opponents and apparently he also enjoys choking out Jay Beagle…

According to their website, the Academy offers many training programs including:

  • Firearms, which trains new agents to discharge all Bureau-issued weapons in a safe and effective manner;
  • Hogan’s Alley, a training complex simulating a small town where FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) new agent trainees learn investigative techniques, firearms skills, and defensive tactics. Hogan’s Alley also houses functioning classrooms, administrative and maintenance areas, and audiovisual facilities;
  • Tactical and Emergency Vehicle Operations Center (TEVOC), which teaches safe, efficient driving techniques to FBI and DEA personnel and other government and military personnel;
  • Survival Skills, a program that gives new agents and law enforcement officers the skills and mindset required to identify and handle critical situations in high-risk environments;
  • Law Enforcement Executive Development, which includes the Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminars (LEEDS) designed for chief executive officers of the nation’s mid-sized law enforcement agencies.
