One of the most important areas of focus when presenting either in-person or virtually (as many of us are doing now), is to know your audience.

Here are some great tips to share with your coaching staff on engaging your 10-and-under development groups, brought to you by Adriana Contreras, Assistant Age Group & Senior Coach, DART Swimming Sacramento.

Zoom Ideas:

  1. Scavenger Hunt
  2. Cooking Together
  3. Disney Dryland
  4. FlipGrid Projects
  5. Rock Paper Scissors Dryland 
  6. Interval Worksheets (keeping the kids familiar with the clock)
  7. Learning to do Origami Together 

Disney Dryland – Pick a movie to watch with the group. Every time something happens in the movie, stop and do an exercise. Get through about 20 minutes of the movie so it gets the kids coming back to finish the movie

Ideas to create content and engagement via social media:

  1. Team Apparel Challenge -- See how much team apparel the kids can put on
  2. Team Snack Challenge -- Send a picture of your snack
  3. Team Cheer Idea
  4. Team Mascot Challenge
  5. Cook your family dinner 
  6. Team Dryland Challenge (Our goal is to get to 1 million sit ups as a team)
  7. Streamline Challenge
  8. Tik Tok” IM Videos
  9. “This or That” – Instagram
  10. “Bingo”-Instagram
