Trust Fall

A trust fall is a team building exercise or ice breaker activity in which a person deliberately falls, trusting the members of a group (spotters) to catch them.

There are different ways to play this. In one way, the group stands in a circle, with one person in the middle with arms folded against his chest and falls in various directions, being pushed by the group back to a standing position before falling again.

In another way a person stands on an elevated position (such as a stage, stepping stool or tree stump) and relies on multiple people to catch them. This variant is potentially more dangerous, so don't try this out on yourself, you may get insured.

Participants are required to step outside their comfort zone to complete this activity.

This activity establishes trust and only when the activity is debriefed in the right way, will this trust spill over into day-to-day life.
