EDGE on Wheels

“I wanted to put in writing how impressed I was with the training when I attended the VRPS Leadership Training Institute. Corralling 65 managers of recreation and inspiring them to engage in training that they have done, in other various times, is amazing. I was so energized and motivated to get back to my team when it was over. Please let your trainers know how effective they were and how imporant their job is and keep up the good work!”

– Participant, Virginia Recreation & Park Society Leadership Training Institute

EDGE on Wheels is a team building program that George Mason University brings to you. Our staff will travel to your site bringing customized portable equipment. The hands-on program will simultaneously engage participants and allow them to learn about themselves, those around them, and their teams or organizations.

Community Groups – We offer team building and leadership development programs to a variety of community and non-profit organizations, including scouts, church groups, athletic teams, civic groups, and volunteer organizations. To enhance teamwork and trust among players, coaches often replace a practice session with an EDGE on Wheels program tailored to teach core values essential to team success.

Programs for community groups are available in 4 hour blocks and are customized to your needs.


For all programs, your organization will need to provide an appropriate space where groups of 8 – 150 people can comfortably gather with some “elbow room” for activities. For example:

  • Community Groups – indoor or outdoor space, meeting rooms, reservable park facilities, etc.
  • Professional Organizations – large conference rooms with removable furniture, hotel conference spaces, flat grass outdoor spaces, etc.
  • Schools/Universities – gymnasiums, drama rooms, field houses, large stages in auditoriums, etc.
