Untangle Me - Team Building Challenge

Teamwork is a vital component of good sportsmanship, and this activity will help you sharpen your skills. In teams of four or five, participants will be blindfolded and given a rope. The team must work together and untangle the rope without taking off their blindfolds. It’s a challenging task that requires communication, trust, and cooperation. Once the team succeeds, they’ll have a greater appreciation for the value of teamwork and the importance of supporting each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

Scavenger Hunt with a Twist

This is going to put a twist on a classic scavenger hunt. Create a scavenger hunt with riddles. Instead of just finding items on a list, each team will be given a riddle to solve that will lead them to the next clue. The riddles will require some critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which is all part of being a good sport. Each team will need to work together and communicate effectively in order to successfully complete the scavenger hunt. This activity will also encourage creativity and resourcefulness, as teams may need to think outside the box to solve some of the riddles.

You could also try a fun Pirate Loot scavenger hunt ready to go if you don’t want to plan anything.

Obstacle Course Relay Race

Now it is time to put your physical abilities and teamwork skills to the test with an obstacle course relay race. This activity will require each team member to complete a portion of the obstacle course before passing the baton to the next team member. To successfully complete the challenge, each team will need to communicate effectively and coordinate their efforts. This activity will promote sportsmanship by encouraging teamwork and perseverance. You can make the course anyway that works for your troop. If you need supplies I recommend the olympic game set from Amazon which has everything you need to make a fun engaging obstacle course with your girls.

Charades with a Twist

In this activity, you’ll play a classic game of charades but with a unique twist. Instead of acting out words or phrases, you and your team will act out emojis! This fun twist will challenge your creativity and communication skills in a whole new way.

To play, divide into two teams and have each team write down a list of 10 emojis on separate slips of paper. Make sure both teams have the same emojis. Then, take turns acting out the emojis and guessing what they are. The catch? You can’t make any sounds or use any props. It’s all about using your body language and facial expressions to convey the emoji.

This activity not only encourages creativity and communication but also requires good sportsmanship. It’s important to both act out the emoji in a way that your team can understand and to congratulate the other team on their successful guesses. Remember, it’s all about having fun and working together as a team.

In conclusion, earning the Cadette Good Sportsmanship Badge is no easy feat, but with these five action-packed activities, you’ll be well on your way to success. Not only will you improve your sportsmanship skills, but you’ll also learn the importance of teamwork, communication, and perseverance.

So, take a deep breath, lace up your shoes, and get ready to push yourself to new limits. As Vince Lombardi once said, “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” Let’s go get that badge!
