Pseudo Army Assault Courses are one of the newest, sweatiest and physically challenging outdoor activities of late – and they’re cropping up all over the country.
There are a myriad of physical, muddy, gruelling and getting soaking wet activities at these army assault courses. These courses prove to be a challenge of strength and fun. The courses are great for a team building activity, a personal challenge of a mate or a great activity for groups.
The army assault courses follow the same pattern as official army obstacle courses – only much more fun. Some of the activities include: Climbing over wooden walls, balancing on 4×4 beams, diving though tube slides, raft building, open canoeing, sea kayaking and those are the easy ones.
Activities, events and packages depend upon the various army assault courses that are available. Some courses have their teams crawl through mud, while others have teams build a raft. Almost all of the courses have the basics like wall climbing, stepping through tires, rock climbing and running.
There are some courses that offer packages like Command and Conquer, Raft Rat Race, Mission Impossible, Medieval Madness and Cave Crisis.
General wet activities can include Kayaking where there is one instructor per eight students, but everyone gets wet. There are beginner-kayaking sessions where an instructor teaches basics such as how to use the paddle, what to do if you fall in and water confidence.
Open canoeing is another activity that has challenges and possibilities. The boats are stable so falling out takes effort. In open canoeing, often there are two people in the canoe making it very easy to manage. You could travel down a river or go nowhere – it is up to those in the canoe, which makes this a sport for all.
At the army assault courses, there are indoor and outdoor activities. Archery is a popular, yet ancient sport that can be practiced indoors or outdoors. To insure success, there are coaches available to help improve skills in a very short time. Climbing is another indoor/outdoor activity. A bastion of rocks to be climbed or moving up an indoor rock wall will pit your strength against that of nature.
Every army assault course contains some kind of maze, whether it be a “Spider’s Web,” a maze through hedges, navigating an obstacle course to avoiding the mines in a minefield. The activities promote personal and team skills, communication skills, cooperation skills, leadership and management skills. The best part of all is that they are all fun.
The assault course includes all kinds of activities and is a must at every army assault course. The activities include things such as: climbing over wooden walls, balancing on beams, diving though tire-tubes. Seesaws, the crawl net, under over bars, river crossing and much more are staples of the course.
The activities at army assault courses may be physically and mentally challenging, but all are rewarding and provide opportunities for teamwork, fitness, unity and lots of fun. All courses have instructors to insure safety and a good time.
