Well since these are coordination "bonds" it might get a bit tricky. I see
two options (perhaps 3):
a) hope that interaction is mainly electrostatic (ionic) and that the
current non bonding parameters are good enough, so you don't have to do
b) Run a hybrid QM/MM simulation
c) decide that you don't want the calcium to leave the binding site and
lock the distances and orientation using additional bonds.
