RISEBA Team in Entrepreneurs’ Sports Games 2018
From 8 to 10 June this year, the annual Entrepreneurs' Sports Games took place, in which a total of 46 teams of different companies competed.
For two days in the "Lejastiezumi" recreation complex, companies competed in teams and in individual disciplines to get as many points as possible for their team. In parallel to the volleyball, streetball, football, and dodgeball, the teams were able to test their strength, speed, balance and ability to work together in non-traditional activities like "Selfie hunt", "Labyrinth", "Tied up", etc. Of course, everyone could also individually take part in various exciting disciplines of agility, precision, and mind. The Children's Cup was also organized, where the youngest participants of sports games competed in agility.
The RISEBA team this year had the agilest children, winning more than one prize in the Children's Cup. Also, RISEBA members succeeded in taking part in individual sports disciplines and winning a prize in Ping Pong.
Parallel to the sports activities there was an opportunity to visit the "Inspiration Tent", where creative personalities shared their experiences on a wide range of topics and observed drone competitions. In the evenings, after active sport, musical entertainment was taken care of by the bands "Pirmais kurss" and "Bermudu divstūris", as well as a DJ. It was a special pleasure for RISEBA because Valdis Avotiņš, a member of the band "Pirmais kurss", is an employee of RISEBA, while the singer of the band "Bermudu divstūris", Emīls Balceris, is a graduate.
The sports games this year were also a beautiful holiday where RISEBA students, faculty and staff were able to relax, get to know each other better and enhance team spirit in order to continue to collaborate successfully both in the learning process and beyond.
