Summer is right around the corner, it’s time to break out some outdoor team building activities for your sales team! Even though a lot of company activities can be seen as well, lame, it doesn’t have to be. If done correctly, team building activities are one of the best ways to create a great sales team culture. Check out more about why team bonding matters and what 5 activities we’ve done with our team!

Why Does Team Bonding Matter?

Team bonding, when done the right way, is an incredibly effective way to create a great team culture. According to Forbes:

It builds trust, mitigates conflict, encourages communication, and increases collaboration. Effective team building means more engaged employees, which is good for company culture and boosting the bottom line.”

5 Great Outdoor Activities For Your Team

  1. Spike Ball/Pickleball/Volleyball Tournament
  2. Relay Races
  3. BBQ
  4. River Tubing/Rafting
  5. Paintball

#1 Spikeball/Pickleball/Volleyball Tournament

Tournaments with pretty much any sport is a fun way to create a competitive environment and it’s easy to set up. Setting up a tournament with games like Spikeball, Pickleball, or Volleyball is an affordable way to get the team moving and working together as an actual team.

#2 Relay Races

Relay races are a tried and true fun idea for larger groups. If you have a sales team of 10 or more reps, try setting up a relay race and split the group into teams for a fun, competitive race. This may seem like an activity for kids, but there are plenty of fun corporate relay races that bring out the fun-spirited side of team members.

#3 BBQ

Skip the company-wide BBQ and do a smaller team-based one. BBQs are a more casual way to get to know your team while eating some great food. This is also a more inclusive option if your team doesn’t enjoy sports or particularly active team bonding. Additionally, BBQs can be paired with other activities like sports or crafts, whichever your team prefers.

#4 River Tubing/Rafting

There are a lot of rivers to raft in throughout the United States that can make for a fun and different team bonding experience. Although this activity is more on the intense side, hiring a rafting guide is a great way to make sure your team is safe while still getting this great experience.

#5 Paintball

If you’ve never been paintballing before, you’re missing out. Paintball is a different way of bonding with less talking and more action, running, and team vs. team excitement. There are a lot of facilities that give you all the equipment you need. Your team just has to show up and have a willing attitude!
