Also Featuring:

"Coach's Guide to Team Building: Volume II" (video segment) with Greg Dale.
In Volume II, Dale takes the next logical step by sharing several team building activities and showing how to implement team building activities into your program. Dale emphasizes the skills utilized during effectively-planned team building activities - teamwork, communication, and trust - all of which are critical in the development and growth of your team. Using several different Duke University teams as demonstrators, Dale facilitates eight team building activities; each time, Dale shares the rationalization for the activity, facilitates the activity, and then leads a post-"team building activity discussion", allowing the athletes to share what they learned - about themselves, and their team, while drawing parallels from the activity itself with team dynamics. This highly informative and entertaining team building presentation will assist you in building a cohesive and unified team!
