Canuck Place Children’s Hospice & EA Sports: Online Hockey Tournament & Team Building Fundraiser

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice & EA Sports: Online Hockey Tournament & Team Building Fundraiser
30 Oct 2020 by DigiBC

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice has partnered with EA Sports to put together this exciting team building opportunity and fundraiser for tech companies in Metro Vancouver.

Why is an online game tournament a great team building activity for your company and a way to give back to the community?

Online competitive sporting video games create collaborative environments by inviting communication and synergy between the players as they learn each other’s styles. They’re prompted to work together to organize their players according to their team’s overall strengths and weaknesses as well as their own. The goal is to create a back and forth competitive atmosphere that will invoke teamwork, boost team morale and bring people together.
