Blue Wave Team BuildingTeam Building

One of our strong points here at Blue Wave is the way we bring people together under difficult situations or circumstances. The bonds that that we see develop during our classes and events have often been a point of interest. Friendships formed within our walls often last for years or even decades. So, we thought why not just put a program together that had the singular goal of cementing relationships between people and have the activities involved be ancillary? In the midst of all that, while new emotional attachment is growing, we might also see communication, responsibility and leadership skills blossom. There you have it…Blue Wave Team Building.

Team Building ActivitiesThe Team Building concept is definitely not new. Outward Bound started in the 40’s and was the first really popular activity of this sort. Troubled teens and young adults were thrown together in a wilderness experience with problem solving and hardship served up. Many others were soon to follow and the concept of Team Building became an accepted buzz word in university and corporate settings. Today, the Team Building concept is as varied as you can imagine; from “Gourmet Cooking” class team building to reality television cross country races.

Here at Blue Wave we do what we know Hay Bale Team Buildingbest…fitness and martial arts activities…and put them in front of our team building clients. We do this in a way that is thrilling, safe and memorable. Whether you want to jump-start a group of newly hired junior management, or imprint lasting memories upon your wedding party, we can create the special activity plan for you. We can work inside or outside, in a park or a wilderness to put together a jaw-dropping series of challenges and activities that will have you telling stories for months afterwards.

Outdoor Team BuildingAt the heart of the planning is Master David Blevins.

Team Building Testimonials

I had a wonderful time at Kristin and Dan’s Wedding Field Day!!!

When Kristin told me they were thinking of doing a field day, I got super excited. When she told me Dave was planning it, I knew we were taking things to another level of awesome!

It takes a unique couple to risk those perfect wedding pictures and open the opportunity for whatever field day throws at them, whether it be scratches from carrying and climbing over hay bales, tan lines, or potential bruises from water balloons being launched their way. Dave did an incredible job planning activities that were all inclusive yet challenging and most importantly allowed the opportunity for our motley crew to get to know each other.

I had a blast, and don’t tell Kristin, but it was hands down one of my favorite parts of the weekend! Thanks to Kristin and Dan for being such a fun couple and to Dave for his thoughtful planning of our epic day!
