One of the keys to success on the volleyball court is chemistry! Building camaraderie is important to building a great team that collaborates and understands that they are all in this together. There are several team building activities that your volleyball team can do together to ensure you build that team spirit.
Team bonding outings, team building games, and simply being together on the trip there can help you do just that. Here we share a few of the best volleyball team building activities for your crew!
Volleyball Team Building Activities
The Human Knot Game
With teammates standing in a tight circle, ask each one to grab the hands of two other teammates. They can choose anyone other than the person standing directly to their left or right. Once everyone is holding on, they must untangle the knot they’ve built while still holding hands. Check out this tutorial on how to play!
An Evening Out
Teammates join together for a night or afternoon out enjoying an event or a game such as a NBA, NFL, NHL, NBA, or NCAA game.
Create a scavenger hunt for teen volleyball teams and let them put their heads together to discover a huge surprise.
