Game of “People to People” during workshop in Erfurt, Germany

Rediscover play! New Games are simply fun, so expect days of enjoying playful interaction with peers of all ages, sizes, abilities and genders, no-one is left out.

You will learn the games by playing them both days and in addition on day two, how to lead them with your group. Get yourself a secret superpower, the ability to lead group games for fun and friendship.

Leading New Games is different to leading traditional sport or recreation you will learn the difference by seeing and experiencing it yourself, and by discussing it.
You will even learn how to create your own New Games! The workshop is very hands-on. You’ll play the games, practice leading the games, get feedback from Dale and the group and you and those in the workshop will finish by leading an open session where family, friends, and the community are invited to give workshop participants a real live successful experience of games leading.

Dale Le Fevre presenting New Games during workshop in Erfurt, Germany

Workshop leader Dale Le Fevre is one of the originators of New Games and has been a New Games teacher since 1975, teaching over 1000 courses in 34 countries. He is the author of 3 New Games books, and has produced 5 related streaming videos/DVDs.

Over 30 New Games will be taught (15+ in one day of a workshop). Appropriate and adaptable for any age, subject area, or work situation. New Games, sometimes with adaptation, can be used to teach subject matter. They can be used as energizers to pick a group up when the energy is flagging.

The games are excellent for use as ice breakers – they can make a collection of individuals feel like a cohesive group.

Finally, If the group would like, we can explore how the games can be used for deeper work, such as improving communication, conflict resolution, and team building.

Workshop sizes are limited and are expected to sell out so to ensure your ticket, book it now.

I arrived feeling resentful that I had to get up so early and give up a weekend I badly needed for myself. After one game I knew I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.

The New Games workshop was a fun and interactive way to learn how to incorporate and teach adaptive activities/games into everyday programming for just about any age and ability set.

(The) New Games Workshop is a fun, hands-on experience. It will ignite your passion to try the games within your own setting as soon as you get back. I had a fantastic day with lots of enthusiastic participants. Thank you Dale.

A great training event. A great mix of theory and practical. This (is the) most I have ever learnt on a training day and it was fun, too.
