Participants move steel balls from Point A to Point B using only the tubes provided. Each ball must go through each person’s tube and they may not touch the ball with their bodies.
The purpose of this exercise is to physically demonstrate the metaphor that every member of a team or group is an important “link in the chain”.
This event is also a good way to examine individual team member’s sense of value and accountability to their team.
The challenge of this event is to carry a small ball using a metal ring and rope, ‘Bull Ring,’ through a series of obstacles and place the ball into a goal.
Bull Ring utilizes physical movement and cooperation. It also takes coordination to keep the ball on the ring. This is a great early activity for new groups because it requires people to communicate clearly and work together. Any one person can sabotage and no one can accomplish the activity alone.
