Have you ever been a Cub Scout?
If you are nodding right now, and you were in fact a Cub Scout during the glory days, then you will most likely remember the Pinewood Derby.
I was a Girl Scout by default, so I personally never got to experience the Pinewood Derby. But after a little online research, I sure do wish it was offered to the Girl Scouts as well.
Regardless of your Scout status, you have the opportunity to relive, or first-time experience, a Pinewood Derby-like event that you’ll never forget.
Sports Team Building: TableTop FASTCAR
In true Scout fashion, this event requires all hands on deck – or should we say track?
Once the Pit Crew “Oath” is recited, each team will race against one another to be the first to carve, build, decorate and race their specialized cars.
To aid the development of a sturdy and dependable race car, teams are allotted a pack of kid-friendly favorites – Legos! (Just make sure you don’t step on them! OUCH!)
In addition to constructing a race-worthy car, your teams are also required to design a game winning Car Flag.
This is an important creative element to the event. Your flag should represent your team, so be sure to enlist the help of your innovative team members. The ranking of the flag is included in the team’s final judgment score.
After cars and flags are procured, it’s off to the races! May the best team win and secure the #1 Rank – like Jimmie Johnson in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series.
TableTop FASTCAR will help your team improve:

As St. Patrick’s Day approaches, you’re looking forward to holiday celebrations and enjoying the company of others. Did you know that legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck?
Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork. The more collaboration that your projects require the more assertive (not passive, aggressive or passive-aggressive!) and intentional your communication should be. (more…)
