The Savannah Bananas Take Their Pre-Game Warm-Ups to New Heights at Go Ape Indianapolis

Tuesday July 2, 2024

The Savannah Bananas, known for their rowdy, fast-paced twist on America’s favorite pastime, recently took their warm-ups to exhilarating new heights with Go Ape. Trading in their baseball bats for harnesses and carabiners, the team and staff embarked on a high-flying adventure at Go Ape in Indianapolis. This week’s unconventional warm-up session was all about teamwork and trust while scaling treetops; building resiliency through challenging, suspended obstacles; and soaring through the air on ziplines, all in the name of building a stronger, more cohesive team.

Go Ape’s team-building activities are designed to push you out of your comfort zones, fostering an environment where trust, communication, and critical-thinking skills are paramount. For the Savannah Bananas, this meant relying on each other to navigate the challenging high-ropes courses and mind-fuddling outdoor escape room, Forest EscAPE. Whether it was guiding a teammate across a wobbly bridge or offering empathetic support while out on a limb (or platform), the Bananas had to communicate clearly and trust each other’s abilities. These experiences mirror the trust and communication skills needed on the baseball field, where split-second decisions and unspoken signals can make or break a play – or dance break.

Beyond trust and communication, Go Ape helped the Bananas hone their adaptability and resiliency. In baseball, as in life, unforeseen obstacles and rapid changes are inevitable. Go Ape activities require the team to think on their feet, adapt to new situations, and overcome physical and mental hurdles. By facing these challenges in a fun, supportive environment, the Bananas were able to strengthen their ability to bounce back from setbacks and approach each new obstacle with a problem-solving mindset.
