5 Quick Tips To Play Bubble Soccer Safely 

Posted on

Are you ready for a bumping and smashing good time? That’s exactly what you’re in for a game of Bubble Soccer! It’s funny to watch your friends rolling over after getting bumped and you can just imagine how much fun they’re having. While enjoying yourself is the main objective, don’t forget that safety is still the top priority. So here are 5 quick tips to ensure you have a bumping good time while playing Bubble Soccer safely!

  1. Wear the Bubble Soccer suits properly

The first step to ensuring that everyone’s safe during the game is to wear your Bubble Soccer suits correctly. Before the Bubble Soccer game starts, our facilitators will show you exactly how to put them on. If it doesn’t sit quite nicely, you must’ve gone in the wrong way. Tip: your heads shouldn’t be protruding out of the Bubble Soccer suits!

  1. Bubble Soccer suits strap must be tight

Don’t think that you’re ready for Bubble Soccer once you’re in the suit! Test the Bubble Soccer suits by running around to see if it’s alright. Sometimes, the straps might be a little loose for you and it doesn’t feel comfortable running in the suit. Get the facilitator to adjust it to your preferred choice and you’re set to go.

  1. Look at the kind of people you’re playing with

Most people would be thrilled to play Bubble Soccer that they just dive right into it. If you’re a group of guys playing against girls, please be a little gentler on bumping! There are many times where girls would love to play Bubble Soccer but they get intimidated by the power of guys. Just be more mindful!

  1. Don’t resist the fall

There’s no way that you would be able to resist a bump and stay put in the same position. You will fall! Don’t be ashamed to hit the ground, as this doesn’t dictate your strength. Roll on to your stomach, get on your knees, and you’re up for the game.

  1. Health over anything else

If you’re feeling unwell, please do not risk your health by playing this game. It might just make you feel worse as you’re going to be running and bumping a lot. For those who feel unwell during the game, speak up too! It’s okay to back out of the game and get a replacement. If need be, our facilitators can join you in the Bubble Soccer game too!

Some Tips and Tricks for Playing Bubble Soccer

Posted on
Bubble Soccer Singapore with Bubble bump Singapore

The first time you heard the phrase bubble soccer you might think that it’s some sort of game that involves blowing bubbles in the air. That is not the case in the 21st century. There are now bubbles that are not only play things; they are wearable too. This is known as the bubble bump. The bubble bump is the round and big bubble that can cover a person from head down to the waist. It has two straps that are adjustable, one on the inside for you to carry the bubble and another one on your shoulders to carry it.

What Is Bubble Bump and What Is Bubble Soccer?

Bubble bump is a contact sport and from the word itself there’s a lot of bumping. There are different games that you can do with bubble bump and one of these is bubble soccer. It is played on a futsal pitch. You can also play this game in a large multipurpose hall, where you can find a flat surface which is smooth.

Here are some tips you can consider when you are just beginning to learn bubble soccer:

Tip 1

The team can have a goalkeeper. It’s not against the game’s rules. This means you always have the green light to come up with a strategy and assign a player as the keeper. The keeper’s role is easy since the bubble that he or she wears can block the goal post.

Tip 2

Once you get bumped, you have to get up quickly and not waste time on the ground. Staying on the ground will give you less time to participate in the game. This means that you’re also giving a lot of chances for your opponent to score or make a goal.

Tip 3

Every opponent is always on the lookout for any chance to bump on you. The best strategy you can have is to target at least one opponent and try to bump into him or her till the game ends.

Tip 4

Always try to bump with the help of the bubble when someone bumps on you. That’s the reason why the bubbles are cushioned.

How to Survive a Bubble Soccer Game

Posted on
Bubble Soccer Singapore with Bubble Bump Singapore

You must have heard the game bubble soccer in the past but you just didn’t mind it. It’s a match that’s played by two teams and each team is composed by not more than five players. Each team should have at least one female playing on the field. A game should not start unless each team has at least three member players. One thing you have to know about bubble soccer is that it is the most energetic, adventure packed, and craziest sport to play. You also have to expect bumps and hits from all your opponents while you are inside the inflatable balloons.

The following are some of the tips that you can abide for you to survive and win in a bubble soccer game:

Get to know your competition.

You will most likely be playing with your close friends. Don’t go against the most agile ones when you have been a couch potato for the longest time. This means that you have to be smart in choosing your opponent. Don’t go against your tall body builder friend if you are physically smaller and shorter too. You may need to have a side kick when you go up against a much bigger opponent.

Don’t aim low.

You should not attempt to hit an opponent in the leg. You have to start hitting on the chest. It’s a more probable option when you’re running low to hit low as well, but it really isn’t a good thing to do. A low blow can simply pull you down.

Straps are your best defense.

The only way for you to be safe and protected is to make sure that the ball takes majority of the force coming from a hit. It’s inevitable for you to take some hits and be knocked off a few times. The straps will serve as your best pal.

Take a rest in between games.

One round of the game can already drain you of liquids. This means that the ball becomes sweaty when you’re running around. If it’s your first round, don’t overdo it. You have to sit it out after the first round and hydrate.

The 4 Types of Bubble Soccer Players You’ll See on the Pitch

Posted on

Bubble Soccer Singapore with Bubble Bump Singapore

For those who haven’t heard of Bubble Soccer yet, it’s essentially the combination of soccer and rugby. It’s not as rough as it seems and neither does it hurt anyone during the game. We’ve conducted so many Bubble Soccer games that we realize there are different kinds of players. Here are 4 types of Bubble Soccer players you’ll meet on the pitch:

  1. The Gentle

You would’ve guessed that most ladies actually fall under this category! This isn’t a gender stereotype but it’s based on what we’ve noticed during the games. Ladies have the tendency to just give their opponents a slight bump and run away. Why? Perhaps, they think that the slightest bump would create a huge impact. In reality, it doesn’t even do much.

  1. The Rough

When you have the gentle people, you’ll also have the rough ones out there. It’s normal to see the males being the rougher one with a handful of females joining them. They’re always more thrilled and pumped to bump into everyone during a Bubble Soccer game. This is when the fun begins and what the game is all about. How is it not funny to see your friends rolling all over the pitch? If you’d like to see more of this happening, be rough and get bumping!

  1. The Competitive Bubble Soccer Singapore Player

We know that being competitive is quite a good thing – but not when it’s unhealthy. The best kind of competition is actually a friendly competition. Whether it’s a friendly game or a competitive game, we know that there are some people who just want to win the game. Before a game of Bubble Soccer, the competitive ones will stretch their muscles first and then try getting into the Bubble suits. They will try running around in them just to familiarise with it before anyone else does so that they’re on top form when the game starts. They’re playing Bubble Soccer with only one thing in mind – to WIN!

  1. The Reluctant Bubble Soccer Singapore Player

Even before a game of Bubble Soccer starts, some players would already be reluctant to play. They’re either too worried about getting bumped too hard or getting injured. Little did they know that getting bumped hard is the fun part of the Bubble Soccer game. The Bubble suits are well cushioned so you need not worry about getting injured at all. The reluctant people usually require quite a bit of convincing before they set foot on the pitch. When the Bubble Soccer game is on, these people wouldn’t be the first to bump others. On top of that, they would also feel reluctant to bump into their own opponents and end up avoiding them throughout.

Bubble Soccer Singapore with Bubble Bump Singapore

Bubble Bump or Bubble Soccer is a popular team building game that has definitely left many people with big smiles. It is a high-energy team building game that also engages everyone in the team to play it non-competitively. Although Bubble Bump may look like a rough game at first, it is actually a great way for you to break off from all formalities and professionalism at work. For a start, wearing the Bubble Soccer suit already looks ridiculously amusing. The fun and laughter begin when you start with the different games. So if you are new to Bubble Soccer, here are a few games that can be played with your suit on:

Bubble Soccer Singapore with Bubble Bump Singapore

1. Bubble Bump VIP

Split your players into 2 teams. A player from Team 1 will be appointed to be the VIP whereas the rest of the members will act as the bodyguards. As bodyguards, you need to protect your VIP as you move to the other end of the court. On the other hand, the entire of Team 2 will be charging towards the VIP and will try to bump him or her down. If Team 1 successfully brings their VIP across, points will be awarded to them! However, if Team 2 manages to bump their VIP down, points will go to them and they will get to choose the next VIP.

2. Bubble Bump Invasion

The name of this game literally speaks for itself. There will be 2 teams standing inside the rectangular box of their “homes”. When the whistle blows, players from each team will come running and bumping into each other. The first team to have all players on the other side of the pitch wins the game.

3. Bubble Bump Soccer

The most classic and traditional game of all time is the Bubble Bump Soccer. It is played exactly like soccer except that no one plays any position. There will not be a goalkeeper in place too. The soccer ball will start in the middle of the pitch and players will start running and kicking when the whistle blows. Note that you are going to get bumped by your opponents for sure. It is easy to run and kick the ball but the challenge comes when you are in your Bubble Bump suit. This game really tests your multi-tasking skills – kicking the ball and looking ahead as you try not to get bumped by anyone.

4. Last Bubble Bump Standing

The match will kick off with a blow from the whistle made by the referee or facilitator. In this game, you need to save yourself first before your friends or colleagues. Here’s why: If you are the first to get bumped, you are out of the game. Then your life in the game would be so short lived and you have to sit on the sideline. Waiting can be boring. Try defending yourself as much. The last Bubble Bump to be standing wins the game!

5. Bubble Bump Middle Man

Only 1 person among the players would need to volunteer himself or herself to stand in the middle of the pitch. The rest of the players will separate themselves into lining up at 2 sides of the court. As soon as the referee or facilitator blows the whistle, everyone on the sideline must run to the opposite side. The middleman is supposed to bump as many people possible while they run across. Those who got bumped will join the middle man and they will continue bumping until there’s only 1 left on the pitch.

6. Bubble Bump Old School “500”

This time around, you will be playing with a squishy. The referee will be throwing the squishy in the air and you have to catch it. Each throw of the squishy will have a different value too. Since your hands are trapped in the Bubble Bump suit, you have to catch it through the hole of the suit that is just above your head. While you are trying to catch it, avoid from getting bumped by other players. The first person to get 500 points will win!

7. Bubble Bump Sumo King

Sounds like a game of knocking each other down – quite literally. There will be 2 players in their Bubble Bump suits standing in a huge ring. The whistle blows off and the 2 players will run into each other and hence, get bumped. But the game is not as simple as that. You have to try to bump your opponent out of the ring!

8. Bubble Bump Ball Bowling

If there is one thing that you need to know about this game, it would be to be brace yourself! One lucky person would be the bowling bowl. The rest of the team members will get into formation and act as the pins. Here’s a tip: a 5 pin formation works the best! The bowling bowl will have to run at full speed towards the pins and bump everyone down. However, you’ve only got 2 tries at this. Go hard or go home!

10 Quick Tips for Bubble Soccer

Posted on

When you mention bubbles, you think about the times that you played with it as a child. Bubbles were only known to many as some form of liquid contained in a bottle in the past. Some people used to challenge each other on who could make the biggest bubble. At one point, bubbles became popular that parents would engage someone just to blow big bubbles and show tricks with it. This would have had fascinated the younger ones.

That’s not the case in the 21st century. We have transformed so much that bubbles are now wearable. Yes, you can wear the bubbles! These bubbles don’t disappear when you poke them. What exactly is this bubble we’re talking about? It’s known as the bubble bump. If you’ve always wondered what it was like being in a bubble, here’s your chance!

The bubble bump is round and big, which is enough to cover your head down to your waist. There are 2 adjustable straps in tact on the inside for you to carry them and the weight of it would be on your shoulders. People often ask, “How do I get in the bubble?” Not to worry, our facilitators will guide you through with a briefing before every game.

Bubble bump is a contact sport that involves lots of bumping. There are several different games you can play with bubble bump. The most popular being bubble soccer where it’s played on a futsal pitch. It’s also possible to do it outdoors such as a multi-purpose hall, where the floor is a flat and smooth surface.

If you’re in search of a new game play at kids birthday parties or corporate Team building events, try bubble bump. You might also want to consider taking these tips down if you’re a first-time player!

Bubble Soccer Tip #1

During the briefing, our facilitators will mention that there won’t be any goalkeeper for each team. But they never said that you can’t have a goalkeeper! That’s a green light for you to just strategise with your team and assign someone to be the keeper. The job of a goalkeeper is easy because the bubble that you put on could easily block out the goal post.

Bubble Soccer Tip #2

After being bumped, get up as quickly as possible! Time spent on the ground is a waste, as you’ll have lesser opportunities to participate in the game. You’re only giving away chances to your opponent to score in a goal or even pinning you down. It only means that you’re going to be glued to the ground unless you could go against the strength that’s making you stay put. To avoid such cases from happening, don’t leave yourself rolling on the floor for too long. Try to recall the technique that our facilitators have thought you on getting up. Roll over on your tummy and get up on both knees.

Bubble Soccer Tip #3

While you’re busy chasing after the ball, your opponents will find every opportunity to bump on you. Here’s what you can do to counter them. Target at least 1 opponent and try bumping them till the very end of the game. So when both teams run to the middle of the pitch for the kickoff, you make sure to bump your opponents down first. Only after that, you can get the ball kicking. As a result, your opponents will have lesser ball possession because they would take quite a bit of time to recover from the fall.

Bubble Soccer Tip #4

Try landing within the bubble when someone bumps you. We cushioned our bubbles for a reason. If you had the straps on tight, you’re more likely to fall within the bubble. Do take note that the bubbles are only able to cover your upper body. Be very careful on how you’re going to fall. Most importantly, don’t resist the fall! It would be dangerous if you fell on your knees or bum as it could lead to an injury. We would like to avoid injuries at all cost and still have all smiling faces at the end of the game.

Bubble Soccer Tip #5

Will you fly across the pitch if someone heavier bumps you? That’s impossible. You would just get to observe the world go round as your bubble gets tossed. “She’s so light, confirm cannot bump other people!” Now, let’s put a stop to that stereotype and show them that anyone of lighter weight can do it too! There’s a trick to it and that is to attack them low. If you’re afraid of doing so, you can just run around bumping others while trying to avoid your opponent.

Hopefully, these tips would come in handy when it’s your turn to play bubble bump soccer. Have a good laugh watching your friends rolling all over. Those that aren’t playing, give your friends some moral support. Lastly, good luck!

Celebrating National Day the Active Way at ITE College Central!

Posted on
Bubble Soccer Singapore with Bubble Bump Singapore
Are you tired of the usual boring national day celebration in school? Read on to see how ITE College Central celebrate their NDP with Bubble Bump for a round of Bubble Soccer!  

1)  Dressed in Red & White
2)  Gather in the Assembly Hall
3) Watch Singing and Dancing Performances
4) National Day Sing-A-Long Session

ITE College Central

Over at ITE College Central, they decided to engage The Fun Empire and Bubble Bump for a different NDP experience for their students.

Instead of just sitting in the assembly hall, the school decided to engage and bond the students by introducing life size, fun games! The Fun Empire and Bubble Bump proposed 3 different games to suit the high energy level of the adults. The 3 games included Combat Archery Tag, Poolball, and Bubble Bump. These 3 games were also great for team building as each game emphasizes on different team bonding objectives such as leadership, communication, and team work.

The Games

As our games were all life sized, we occupied the whole of the school multipurpose’s hall. Upbeat songs were also played throughout the event to keep the atmosphere alive. Soon after we set up, the students arrived. After a quick warm up and detailed briefing session by our professional facilitators, we started the games! As the event was similar to a carnival, students had to queue and take turns to try out the games. The response was overwhelming as the queue for each game were crazily long!

However, we were glad that we planned each game duration to be around 5-10 minutes to ensure quick changeover of teams. The students all waited patiently for their turn and they were greatly entertained while watching their friends play too.

Students strategised as they played the game of combat archery tag, communicated on which ball to score for the poolball game, and cheered their peers on during bubble soccer. One game definitely wasn’t enough as many students stayed on and re-queue for round 2 or even round 3!

Even the teachers were tempted to join in the games as they watched their students play many rounds of it. Though tiring for our facilitators, It was satisfying seeing all those smiles on the students! Yet another successful event off the checklist!
