Team building activities

Hula Hoop HutHula team building activityHula Hoop Castle

We started the climbing wall unit with some team building activities. The goal of the activity was build a free standing hula-hoop castle and then one team member must crawl inside the hut. The Castle is built by laying the first hoop on the ground,then 2 hoops on a 45 degree angle touching at the top. The other one hoops are placed at 45 degree with a support of 90 degree hoop. Final hoop is placed at the top to finish the Castle.

Hula Hoop Castle ball

Set up : Split the class into two teams each occuping one side of the gym.On each side behind the end line place three “castles”.

Equipment Needed: Hula Hoops and dodge balls.

Object: The object of the game is to try and throw a dodge ball to knock over the other team’s castles.The both teams are trying to defend their castles from being knocked over.When one team loses all three castles the game is over.


Teams are not allowed to reset their castles if they are partially knowed over.




Two different colored hula-hoops are needed for each circle.Student form a circle, facing inwards.Every one joins hands around the circle.Two people in the circle hold the two hoops between them,(so that the hoops are now resting on the top of their  joined hands.) The challenge is to pass the two hoops in opposite directions around the circle with out ever unclasping hands. On color hoop goes in one direction, and the other color hoop in the direction.The hoops cross in the middle and keep going so that each color hoop ends up where the other hoop began.The faster circle to do this wins.

Any base Baseball

Equipment :Rubber ball  and bases.

Divide the group into two teams . The game is played on a regular softball field. Home plate is a regular base.  The other base are 1st,2nd and 3rd base and on the pitcher’s mound.There are no outs. Everyone on the batting team will have one turn at bat before the team rotate.The batter goes up to bat at home plate.The pitcher roll the ball to batter and batter tries to kick the ball anyplace within the boundaries.The batter then tries to run as many bases as possible and get safe before the fielding team gets the ball to the pitcher.The batter is safe when he/she is standing on the base and to score runs, the runner must run all the way from 3rd base to first base to be safe  and score one run.Base runners continue to advance and score runs until they become out or their inning at bat is completed.

Important points-

More than one runner can stand on any base.

Runs are scored when the base runners touch home plate and run to first base before being tag with the ball.Because home plate is not a safe for runners.

A fly ball does not automatically get the batter out.

The play is stopped when someone from the fielding team catches the ball.

If the base runner is not on the platehe/she can be tag with the ball.
