This document present a team-building activity using sports as a platform; specifically, using the Traditional Filipino Street Games as activities. The program is organized by Magna Kultura Foundation, the National Organizer of the Filipino Games in the Philippines.
The Palarong Pinoy events are conducted in a Mini-Olympics sports format with referees, marshals, and a tournament system that organizes adults into teams with Team Captains and Coaches. Adults are immersed into fun games like: Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Piko, Luksong Lubid, Luksong Tinik, Chinese Garter, Sipang Bilangan, and various Pinoy relay race games.
Larong Pinoy Games are equally fun and challenging. It’s an unforgettable experience that each and everyone will cherish, as it will bring out the child in every participant. It will bring back the good ‘ol days when they all use to play it.
The program is organized to make the Traditional Filipino Street Games available for adults. Organizing Larong Pinoy Sports Fest for Private companies is among the cultural entrepreneurship approaches of Magna Kultura to revive the Games of our Heritage (Laro ng Lahi) among Filipino adults who use to play the games; so that they too can teach their children how to play the games. Thus, bring back the Filipino games back in the mainstream of Philippine society, among children and adults.

A FUN TEAM BONDING EVENT ACTIVITY WITH A FILIPINO TOUCH
LARONG PINOY MINI-OLYMPICS
The following presents a proposal for the company to launch a Sports Fest that will engage staff/employees in a team building activity using Traditional Filipino Street Games as platform.
Team building is more than just dragging employees to the usual basketball intramurals or having someone give them a lecture on why it’s important to work together. People learn best when they’re moving around, interacting, and working together on fun challenges. There's more than one way to improve the level of employee engagement in a company. Using Larong Pinoy is a unique platform to engage employees, creating youthful energy and fun community atmosphere at the workplace. It triggers sharing of personal experiences and insights that leads to intimate bonding.
TEAM BUILDING DYNAMICS
Since the 1980’s there have been many new ideas and innovative games. Since Y2008, many companies have opted to launch sports fest using the Traditional Filipino Street Games. With Larong Pinoy, we make employees THINK FILIPINO.
A Larong Pinoy teambuilding will challenge employees & staff to re-learn the Filipino Street Games blended with team building values and activities in the office.
The selection of Larong Pinoy as a Sports Fest Activity is intended to involve employees into doing an alternative event instead of the usual western sports, to make the company affair fun and truly Filipino. It is a fact that only a few employees get to play in the usual sports like basketball, volleyball, or other western sports; with Larong Pinoy everybody can play --- from executives, to staff, to clerks, to general service employees. It’s a game everybody knows. It’s a game everyone can enjoy --- even the non-sporty type.
With Larong Pinoy as sports fest platform, the team bonding goals will flow naturally among employees and staff, internally at the office even before the day of the event.
Internally at the Office
It will get each and every employee talking about the games, reviewing what they know, and definitely remembering their childhood memories. It will “bring-out the child” in everyone when they relate to one another, making the office alive.
It will trigger individual exploration, making young people consult elderly employees who are knowledgeable about the games. It is a light and fun bridge for office bonding.
And, it will trigger CommuniTeam bonding as they practice the games together.
Playing at the Field
Larong Pinoy is definitely out-of-the-ordinary (than the usual basketball or track racing). Even non-players will have the fun of watching co-employees execute compete in the games.
Total team bonding, cooperation and fun-filled discipline will naturally flow amongst all participants.
Larong Pinoy will leave no physical hurt or emotional feelings (unlike rough sports like basketball), because it’s all child-like fun games and thrills that are so Pinoy.
The Larong Pinoy sports fest will impart a youthful and unforgettable experience among employees. The youthful atmosphere that it creates will make them feel as if they all grew up together. Aside from CommuniTeam Building, it builds employee relationships .
With Larong Pinoy
Everything Old Is New Again.

Larong Pinoy during Company Sports Fests,
bonding with fellow-employees, and building
relationships like real “kababata’s” --- and
breathing youthful energy in the organization.
It is a game everybody knows. It is a game that
anyone can play with a youthful spirit.
The experience reverberates within the organization even weeks after the event ---- making each and every feel as if they “grew up and played with each other when they were young”.
This is the spirit that games of our heritage
bring into an organization.
And a well-organized event even makes it more memorable.

Palarong Pinoy Mini-Olympics is a one-of-a-kind event activity that will surely be the “talk-of- the-office” ; everyone will re-live their childhood memories and discuss with fellow-employees. It’s one-of-a-kind. It breathes youthfulness among employees. It bonds the young and old.
Unlike the usual sports (like basketball or volleyball), with Larong Pinoy almost everyone could play; even non-players could cheerfully participate, actively cheering & jeering at the sidelines.
It takes less days and organizing expense than conducting a basketball tournament, considering that honoraria for basketball referees is P500.00 per game --- not to mention that there are two referees and two more table officials --- so officiating cost per game averages P2,000.00, excluding venue fee per hour --- multiplied by the number of games in Round Robin matches that could take many days (weeks) of games. Sometimes other employees don’t attend games. Larong Pinoy is the Game of our Heritage. A truly Filipino company can make a difference among their employees and in the business community
THE ADVANTAGES OF A LARONG PINOY SPORTSFEST
Outsourcing the Sports Fest for A Hassle-Free Company Event
Organizing a company event could be a tedious task for internal organizers. While it will be fun for employees playing in the event, it can be exhausting for the HRD and/or Sport fest Committee, “robbing” them of the fun that they to should be enjoying. It’s all about CREATING IMPACT in the lives of employees and letting them feel the Value of the company they work for. The advantage of having a professionally organized corporate event are:
It takes away from employees the hassle of organizing and coordinating everything. It will let the staff just do more productive work for the company while the event gets organized properly.
It ensures for a more professional conduct of an event with an “Olympic”-like atmosphere, letting employees partake in an event that is professionally organized. The conduct of the program is more professional --- it’s like a real “Olympics”! And employees would definitely feel like being a part of what seems like a “big” event. And every employee would credit the company’s effort for giving them the best that they deserve.
Employees would see the difference of a professionally organized event: with all the tournament system and format; with the all the game marshals, materials and ground set-up.
The impact that it creates will surely be credited to the company’s image of putting value in the corporate team bonding activity. Instead of having criticism for a poorly organized affair, it makes each and every employee value the presence of the company in their lives.
IT’S AN EVENT THAT HAPPENS ONLY ONCE-A-YEAR. A WELL ORGANIZED COMPANY EVENT WILL GIVE MORE LASTING MEMORIES THAT WILL IMPACT COMPANY LOYALTY OF EVERY EMPLOYEE. IT’S ALL ABOUT GIVING THE STAFF & EMPLOYEES THE BREAK THAT THEY DESERVE.
