SA Mini Olympics Team Building Activity
Experience the team spirit, competitiveness and excitement of the Olympics with TBAE’s SA Mini Olympics team building activity. To start the Mini Olympics, your group will be divided into teams with each team needing to create a name for their made up country. This newly created country will need its own anthem and flag which each team will have to write and perform in front of the rest of the teams at the opening ceremony. With the opening ceremony completed the games can now begin. Teams will compete against each other in a variety of activities that are both fun and designed to get the team members working together as a team. The activity ends with the closing ceremony where the victorious team sings their anthem.
Available at an additional cost (not included in standard event):
Green Screen for Opening & Closing Ceremony
Some possible outcomes for the SA Mini Olympics team building activity include teamwork, communication, leadership, cooperation, goal setting, creative thinking, decision making, problem solving, resilience, time management and trust.
These are some of the team building exercises that may be included in the SA Mini Olympics team building activity. Your facilitator will select the appropriate exercises to match the venue and team on the day.
