Team Building Activities To Bring Your Recreation Center Staff Closer Together

One of the best things you can do to ensure that your recreation center is running as efficiently as possible is to make sure your team is working well together. Team building activities are often thought of as cliché. No boss wants to become the Michael Scott of their office. However, good team building activities do not have to be something your employees do not enjoy. Instead, tailoring your activities to your recreation center employees can help bring your staff closer, creating a more efficient team to run your business. Today, Sports Facility Management will recommend a few team building activities that are sure to be a hit with your recreation center staff.

Get Your Team Active

Nothing will bring a group closer together than playing on a recreational sports team together. The office softball or indoor soccer team will quickly create bonds between coworkers that will last a long time. While not everyone may be interested in participating on the team, they can also come watch the games to spend time with their coworkers. While this activity does not go over well in every business, sports-related facilities are the perfect place for them. Often times your employees will have an athletic background and will love the opportunity to get active.

Plan a Cook-Off

Even if some of your employees aren’t interested in joining an office sports team, they all are interested in eating. Plan a cook-off and have your employees test their culinary skills in a competition. Choose something fun like pizza, salsa, or cookies and your employees can show off their creativity. The best part about a cook-off? Everyone gets to eat the food afterward.


What better way to bond than working together towards a good cause? Not only is it great for your business to get your employees working together outside of the recreation center, but it does your community some good as well. Another great benefit is that many recreation centers tend to have young employees who are still looking to build their resume. Volunteering opportunities are excellent for any young person’s resume, improving your employees’ participation rate.
