Is your team up to the LEGOLAND challenge?

T-E-A-M Go Team! Does your child love LEGOS? Do you know a group of kids that are ready for a building challenge?

LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Schaumburg is inviting all Chicagoland sports clubs to enter its first ever team building competition. Local youth baseball and youth hockey teams are being recruited to enter the first every team "building" competition.

For interested youth teams, please send a LEGOLAND a team picture and a description of the project that your team would like to build. The theme of the brick creation should be team spirit. Teams can visit LEGOLAND and work with a Master Model Builder to bring to life their team spirit inspired brick creation. Each entry will be judged on creativity, originality and sense of humor.

From all valid entrants, one local youth hockey team and one local youth baseball team will advance to a face-off playoff. The playoff will consist of sports-themed challenges, culminating in a giant mosaic building showdown. The winning team will walk away with a trophy made of Lego bricks.

According to Ben Sweet, General Manager at LEGOLAND Discovery Center, said: “Being a LEGOLAND Discovery Center team player won’t be as simple as just being able to follow instructions to build a great model.”

“It’s about coming together to use your team spirit to be able to build quickly and accurately, no matter how limited your selection of bricks. And we want to test Chicagoland’s sports competitiveness to find the best local team out there.”

To enter the Team Building competition, please visit or at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center’s Facebook Fan Page at All entries are due by May 24, 2010.  All contest entries will be posted on the Master Model Builder’s blog online and around the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Schaumburg and the best team from each sport will go forward to the playoffs.
