Teambuilding through play with Acrobranch
How moments of purposeful play can strengthen your team.
I was recently watching a netball match at school and memories flooded back to when I used to be on a netball field. I was fortunate to be part of a team that just clicked and hardly ever lost a game. Watching this team play, I wondered how we created such an amazing bond as a team, as this “team” I was watching just could not let the game flow. Then it struck me, our netball coach took us as a team, at the ripe young age of 12, on a fun team building activity. It was an outdoor, play and picnic activity, where we had to work together to reach the end goal. This was silly fun to a 12 year old but looking back now it shaped all the important connections, well-being, and trust in our team. Behind every successful team, is a happy team!
Acrobranch had recently invited us to be adventurous at one of their courses and now I see how this venue is just perfect for some safe and purposeful teambuilding play.
What do Acrobranch have to offer for your team?
Kids between the ages of 3 to 6 can let loose on the yellow Acro-twigs course. The teams will be shown the ropes by a hands on instructor and shown how to clip and unclip the safety harness designed to keep the little ones safe as they take on the challenge of the 11 obstacles including 3 zip lines. The course was then dutifully monitored by the instructor.
Their bigger courses are structured for different fitness levels. Kids can also participate in these courses (height and age restrictions apply). There is a green beginners course The Monkey Moves, the blue medium course, the Swinging Tarzan, and the red expert course for the High Flying.
Their beginners Course, The Monkey Moves course, gradually increases in height.
Their moderate course, the Swinging Tarzan, consists of zip lines, bridges, monkey bridges, Tarzan jumps and many others activities to challenge everyone . Then, for the more daring, why not attempt the High Flying course. Each individual is secured with a harness and the friendly guides are there to walk you and your team through the process, ensuring your teams safety at all times.
