Motivating Your Team

One of the ways of making sure your team shows up engaged and prepared for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® is by keeping them motivated. Here are a few suggestions to successfully build your team and have fun at the same time.

Keep It Together

Play. When you get together with your team members for training walks or team meetings, have fun with it.

More Team Training Ideas

Buddy up. Create a buddy system within your team so that team members are checking up on each other. This will also help lessen the load on the team captain.

Organize. A team captain should keep track of each team member’s progress by using the team-tracking sheet in the Team Captain Handbook.

Play some more. Get together just for fun. (OK, you can call it a party!) Create an activity other than walking that brings your team together to bond. Throw a team potluck or a family picnic. Have a bowling competition, wine tasting or bike ride. The possibilities are endless.

Bond. The more cohesive your team is, the more likely your team members will help each other along the way with fundraising, training and motivation to show up for the event. If you have good memories before the 3-Day you’re sure to have even better memories after the event.

Theme Your Team

It’s all in the name. Come up with a name your entire team is excited about.

Dress to impress. Show your team unity with your fashion.

Get creative at camp. Let your tents do the talking!
