Hula Hoop Pass

Hula Hoop Pass
This element is a great team builder for work retreats, youth camps, small groups, and more! With
very little preparation and materials needed, it’s easy to transport and facilitate with exciting results.
Objective. To pass a Hula Hoop around a circle of people.
Materials Needed. One Hula Hoop.
Instructions. Have the group or team form a circle holding hands. Two people will need to let go of
their grip long enough to place their hands through a hula hoop, then they can rejoin hands. The
task is to pass the hula hoop around the circle in a specified direction until it returns to the starting
point; without breaking hands. Step through, pass over, whatever it takes. Another way to play is
two use two Hula Hoops and have them go around the circle in opposite directions.
* A fun variation is to use a loop of rope (about the same size as hula hoop).
Afterwards process the element by asking the group questions (see Low Ropes Essentials),
encouraging them to think through the process:
Processing the element:
• What made the element challenging or difficult?
• Formulate other questions based on their responses making sure to touch on subjects like
communication, teamwork, leadership, time, etc.
