Team Building Opportunities

Indoor Climbing Wall

Our UGAA Rock Wall Centre is a state-of-the-art facility that includes top roping, bouldering and lead climbing.  Participants will climb in a safe and positive environment led by our climbing instructors and learn climbing safety as well as belaying techniques. Working together as both a climber and belayer, teams of two will then tackle a wide range of routes that will satisfy climbers of all skills and experiences.  All necessary equipment is provided at the Rock Wall facility.  

To book your team building event at the wall contact Kevin at lindner@uoguelph.ca

"Stress Buster" - Gryphon "Among Us" - Next Event TBD

Virtual Escape Room - Next Event TBD

Our new virtual escape rooms use the hugely popular "Legends of Canada" by Complex Rooms format and platform. Each event is coordinated through a Microsoft Teams video call by a representative from the Department of Athletics. Players are divided into teams of 6 to try to work together to "escape". 

Online Trivia - Next Event TBD

A virtual play experience offered in collaboration with the "Snow Days" initiative for the winter 2021 semester start.  Participants will compete in an online trivia activity that will cover all sorts of general themes and genres.  This activity will be run on both Kahoot! and Microsoft Teams platform and is FREE to all registered U of G students.

Programming temporarily suspended due to COVID-19:

Bubble Soccer 

Inflatable sports offer all the physical activity a traditional sport would but with the added element of bouncing and bumping into your opponents (maybe even teammates).  Our friendly staff of referees set up the orbs and field of play followed by a safety orientation. Our Bubble Orbs comes in different shapes and sizes to accommodate groups of all ages.  Groups can play different configurations of 4v4 or 5v5 in a single game or mini-tournament format. All necessary equipment is provided including knee pads which are mandatory.   

Nerf Battle 

Our Nerf battle royal is by far our most popular team-building activity.  Groups are split into teams and play various formats from all-out team vs team battles to one-on-one single-shot games or even capture the flag!  Before every event, our team of experts builds a cardboard box terrain that allows teams and players to formulate the best strategies to survive and dominate.  All of the nerf guns and foam bullets are provided with this event as well as safety glasses for players.  This event is great for large groups of 20-30 plus; check out the video below to see more.
