Corporate Team-Building SportsfestCORPORATE SPORTS FESTS AS 3RD ADVOCACY STRATEGY 

Magna Kultura Foundation has been conducting Larong Pinoy events for companies as 3rd Strategic Option for advocating the Games back in the mainstream of society.  Its 1st strategic option is by conducting  Larong Pinoy Sports Clinics in schools and communities; its 2nd option is implementing Palarong Pinoy tournaments in Barangays and schools.

Conducting Larong Pinoy for offices not only provides the team-building needs of the companies, but revives the fun of the games among adults who use to play it when they where young.  Magna Kutura believes that once adults play it again, they will be able to play it with their children, especially during weekends.

Filipino Companies Organize A Company Sportsfest Using Larong Pinoy Games

The Traditional Filipino Street Games finds its home once again back into the hearts of Filipinos, as adults re-discovered the fun of playing Larong Pinoy during Company Sports Fests; bonding with fellow-employees, and building  relationships like real “kababata’s”, with breathing  energy. It is a game everybody knows.  It is a game that anyone can play with a youthful spirit. 

The Filipino Street Games have been with us for over a century.  In today’s modern age of technology, the games are very much alive, bringing fun in communities, schools, and lately, as a team-building sports fest in local corporations.Human Resource Department personnel saw the values that it brings to employees, as it bonds young and old together in activities that everyone can play. Filipino 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.

Since the 1980’s there have been many new sports and innovative games — Triathlon, Xtreme Sports, Cross Games, Fun Runs, etc.  In Y2008, many companies have opted to launch sports fest using the Traditional Filipino Street Games as platform form team-building sports fests. With Larong Pinoy, employees THINK FILIPINO.

larong-pinoy-company-sports-festThere’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.

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.  Larong Pinoy challenges employees & staff to re-learn the Filipino Street Games blended with team building values and youthful camaraderie in the office.  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.

What Happens When Companies Decide To Use Larong Pinoy As Sportsfest Platform?

Internally at the Office

  • Larong Pinoy triggers each and every employee to talk about the games, as well as their experience about it in the past — reviewing what they know, and definitely remembering their childhood memories.  It brings out the child in everyone when they relate to one another, making the office alive with camaraderie.
  • It triggers individual exploration, even making young people consult elderly employees who are knowledgeable about the games.  It is a light and fun bridge for office bonding.
  • Larong Pinoy is a great CommuniTeam bonding platform for employees before the event, while they practice the games together.

Then, During The Event

  • Larong Pinoy engages employees with a unique sporting experience (definitely different from the usual basketball or track racing). In all types of games, everyone can play — young our old, line or staff.  And, even non-players have the fun of watching co-employees execute and compete in the games.  It’s a different kind of fun.
  •  There is total team bonding with fun-filled cooperation that naturally flow amongst participants.  Larong Pinoy leaves 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 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.

Palarong Pinoy: A Fun Team-Building Sports Fest

Palarong Pinoy: A Fun Team-Building Sports Fest

More and more Filipino corporations are organizing Palarong Pinoy sports fests. Over 100 companies have held Larong Pinoy Corporate Mini-Olympic Events.  Human Resource Managers have testified that a Larong Pinoy even is truly a one-of-kind activity that leave lasting impression on employees, and bring out the best in each and everyone.

Unlike Basketball or any of the usual western sports activities, Larong Pinoy is a game where everybody will be able to easily participate in.  Even employees who don’t want play enjoys the event — cheering, “jeering” and supporting the teams.  Iba ang Larong Pinoy.  Ito ang tunay na Laro nating mga Pinoy.

A Larong Pinoy  company sports fest is both for young and old employees, for male and female, and for everybody who’s every inch a Filipino.

Magna Kultura started advocating Palarong Pinoy company sports fests in 2009 as a way of promoting patriotism among adults in a fun way.  Since then, the word spread that companies could have an alternative sporting event other than the usual western games.  Companies have been requesting Magna Kultura to organize their sports fest not only during summer, but any month of the year.

Magna Kultura organizes the games like a real Olympics with Tournament Systems, Referees, Game Marshals. Employees are grouped into teams with team captains.  And competitions are conducted with matches on Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Jumping Rope, Sipang Bilangan, and various Pinoy Relay Races with timed heats & team scores tabulated.

But what makes it even great is that, everyone who plays the game with their fellow- employees gets the feeling like they are childhood playmates (magkababata).  The activity becomes a unique team-bonding experience.  The experience goes beyond the event as employees cherish the thoughts of the games through-out the year.

To build a corporate family, let employees play like children.  Because employees work hard — let them play hard!  A Sports Fest Team Bonding Activity can be held anytime of the year.  It doesn’t have to be summer.

20 Philippine Hospitals Compete In Larong Pinoy Sports Fest

In celebration of the National Hospital Week last August, twenty (20) Philippine government hospitals will be competing in a Palarong Pinoy Sports Fest at the Marikina Sport Center.

Surgeons, Physicians, Doctors, Nurses, and medical staff will all take time-out to play the games of our heritage — Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Piko, Luksong Lubid, Luksong Tinik, and other Filipino Street Games — and “emergency leave” that will make them re-live their youthful spirits.

A total of 600++ plus medical practitioners participating in the games will be divided into six (6) teams, playing in two divisions.

The Philippine Hospitals that participated in the Palarong Pinoy Mini-Olympics were:

Marikina Mayor Del R. De Guzman graced the occasion to greet the medical practitioners commented, “It’s a happy sight to see adults playing the games of our heritage, and doctors and nurses at that”

The National Hospital Week Sports Fest is organized by Magna Kultura Foundation, the chief proponent of the Traditional Filipino Street Games in the Philippines.  Magna Kultura Foundation has been organizing Larong Pinoy in schools, Barangays, and recently, have been conducting mini-Olympics for local corporations.

 

“It is not true that Larong Pinoy is vanishing in the Philippines”, according to Dickie Aguado, Executive Director of Magna Kultura Foundation, “In fact, a lot of companies have been requesting for us to organize a Pinoy-flavored Olympics for their employees.  They want something new, away from the usual western games; and something “old” like Larong Pinoy, to make them feel young again.”

Contrary to the notion that the Filipino Street Games are no longer played, as some perceives that it has vanished in Philippine society; in urban and rural areas, a great majority of  children still play the games with their neighbourhood friends.

Larong Pinoy is a cultural treasure that is well-accepted by all Filipinos across all ages. The Filipino Games are timeless.  It is still cherished by many, as it is part of our heritage.  Larong Pinoy’s popularity encompasses not only the youth, but adult and elderly generation as well. It’s a timeless cultural treasure.  It promotes fun.  It promotes culture.  It instills patriotism.

Aguado adds, “The Doctors and nurses celebrating the National Hospital Week will surely be having a meaningful bonding experience.  It will make them young again”.

Buhayin Nating Ang Larong Pinoy. Buhayin Natin Ang Diwang Pinoy.
