Tampa Team Building activities do not have to be limited to the hotel ballroom. Think about bringing the fun to one of the many phe pristine beaches on the Gulf of Mexico around Tampa, Clearwater, St. Pete Beach and as far south as Ft. Myers Beach and Naples. Every once in a while, the company is tasked with hosting a corporate team building event that is on one of these great beaches. Here are a few ideas we have used over the years with our clientele.
Sandcastle Building Contest
Building sandcastles may sound like child’s play, but don’t tell that to the many people that enter the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival’s Sandcastle Contest every April. What we do is not quite that serious, but this is a classic beach activity for all-ages that can easily be turned into a Tampa team building game. We divide participants into teams and give them a set amount of time to create the best sandcastle they can. We encourage creativity by having participants use different tools and decorations available on the beach like shells, pebbles, and driftwood. You can set up criteria for judging such as creativity, teamwork, and structural integrity.
Beach volleyball is an excellent team building game that can be played with as few as four people. It promotes teamwork, communication, and coordination. You can organize a tournament where teams compete against each other. The team that wins the most games wins the tournament.
A beach Olympics event is a fun way to engage a large group of people in different Tampa team building activities. You can organize various games such as relay races, tug of war, beach volleyball, and sandcastle-building contests. Assign points to each activity and keep track of the scores to determine the winning team.
Beach Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt is a fun and interactive way to build teamwork and communication. Create a list of items that teams have to find on the beach such as a seashell, a piece of driftwood, a crab, and a starfish. The team that finds all the items on the list first wins.
Beach Frisbee Golf
Frisbee golf is a fun and challenging game that requires precision and teamwork. Set up a course on the beach using different landmarks like trees, rocks, and beach umbrellas as the targets. Each team takes turns throwing the Frisbee and the team that completes the course in the fewest number of throws wins.
Dodgeball is a classic game that can be played on the beach. Divide participants into teams and set up a court using cones or beach towels. The objective of the game is to eliminate all the players on the other team by hitting them with a ball. The team that eliminates all the players on the other team wins.
Beach Tug of War
Tug of war is an excellent team building game that requires strength and coordination. Divide participants into teams and set up a rope between two poles on the beach. Each team tries to pull the other team over the line. The team that pulls the other team over the line wins.
Soccer is a popular game that can easily be adapted to the beach. Set up a small field on the beach and divide participants into teams. The team that scores the most goals within a set time wins.
Beach games are an excellent Tampa Team Building activities to build camaraderie and teamwork among colleagues.
