To be successful, teams need to communicate, plan projects and manage time effectively. This makes Soap Box Derby team building suitable for everything from senior management team building through to client hospitality functions – and everything in between.
Exciting, practical and highly interactive, this team building event has something for everyone.
We’ll begin by welcoming you to your Soap Box Derby team building experience. Then, we’ll explain how the day will unfold and get everyone into teams ready for a series of 30 minute team challenges.
Will you be performing a Mexican wave in our Around the World quiz? Bagging footballs blindfolded in our Space Balls game? Or linking words in our Pyramid word puzzle?
These games offer chances to earn fun money to “spend” on equipment for your racer. And the more money you have, the easier it will be! Games also encourage team bonding, communication and problem solving, before the big event.
However large your group, everyone will get to play every game with their team. We bring multiple sets of equipment and the perfect number of facilitators to ensure everything runs like clockwork.
Once the challenges are complete, you’ll start assembling your racers!
You’ll receive briefing documents, equipment and tools to get started. But can you assemble your go kart chassis, wheels, seat and steering wheel in time for the big race? This is what makes our Soap Box Derby such a good time management and project planning exercise.
Then, it’s time to get creative – you’ll buy racing suits, flags and craft materials from our shop with your fun money to decorate your ride. Think pipe cleaners, balloons, foil and ribbons… Next, choose a race car driver, theme and team name for proud display as they pull up to our starting line!
Finally, it’s racing time. All teams will come together for the grande finale. Each team’s driver will pilot their cart around our obstacle course as fast as their legs will carry them as the crowd goes wild!
The team with the most points at the end of the day receive well-deserved golden medals in our closing ceremony.
Soap box derby team building is interactive, creative and practical. To do well, teams have to manage their time effectively, plan ahead and communicate about what they’re trying to achieve. As such, it can be used to improve all of these skills – and more!
We can design the event to be more competitive or more collaborative. Make it as short as 90 minutes or as long as half a day. We can even use it to develop particular skills in your organisation.
When you book your team building event with us, we’ll take you through our unique 5 step team building process. This means we’ll work with you to identify your desired outcomes, design the derby to deliver on these and provide you with a report to evaluate your event’s success.
Soap Box Derby team building can be booked as a standalone team building event or integrated into a larger event, such as a corporate event or company away day.
“We’ve used eml team for many years now and have always been more than impressed. The team building activities are always fantastic, but it’s the organisation and management of the team building event that we always value so much.”
