Health and Wellbeing - June 2012
29 May 2012
Well folks it’s that time of year again, the time to decide if you want to participate in Melbourne’s premier lunch-time sports competition, the Corporate Challenge.
The Corporate Challenge provides its participants a selection of fantastic sports in very convenient CBD locations.
Team-based activities are a great way for corporate workers to interact outside the normal office environment, and some examples of the benefits our participants experience include:
- Incorporating fun and fitness into your week;
- Improved concentration and stress minimisation; and
- Building a more cohesive working environment
The current repertoire of sports includes netball, soccer, basketball and lawn bowls. With a strong culture of inclusivity and sportsmanship, the Corporate Challenge has something for everyone.
Registrations open the end of June. For more information on this event, please visit the AMCS website, http://www.melbournecitysports.ymca.org.au or call our office on 9604 8600
Are you on the lookout for something completely outside the box? Then this could be the answer you’re looking for.
The sport of curling has existed for over 500 years, with the game gaining the attention of the wider world with its introduction as an Olympic sport in 1998.
What makes the story of curling so interesting is how unique the sport looks when played.
Often likened to lawn bowls on ice, curling involves the sliding of granite stones along the ice, with two people sweeping the ice in front of the stones to control the speed, with the aim to end up as close as possible to the target located 45 metres away.
Curling can be played and won by anyone, regardless of age or physical capabilities. The game requires a combination of team-work, chemistry and communication to succeed. Corporate Curling is played at the world-class Medibank Icehouse facility located in Harbour Town.
Packages are tailored to suit the needs of your company and can include a team-building session, curling coaching, games of curling and food and refreshments.
For more information on this event, please call our offices on 9604 8600.
With all the spectacular sights and sounds that Melbourne has to offer, there is no better method of appreciating these than the opportunity to get active and run.
Melbourne has a unique running culture, with many corporate workers using their lunch breaks as an opportunity for training.
By running at lunch-time, these workers capitalise on the benefits associated with exercising, without eating into their valuable time spent at home.
One such event which capitalises on the lunch-time running window is the Corporate Cup, a fortnightly, team-based running/walking program conducted at the Tan Track around the Royal Botanic Gardens.
The Corporate Cup provides its participants with individual and team statistical analysis of their times.
This highlights improvement not only for an individual, but also improvement as a team.
The Corporate Cup is has a great social aspect as participants familiarise themselves with their teammates and fellow competitors.
Registrations open at the end of June. For more information on this event, please visit the AMCS website, http://www.melbournecitysports.ymca.org.au or call our office on 9604 8600.
