Game of the Week
At Becky Adlington Training, we're proud to have the most dynamic, engaging, passionate tutors in the industry leading our courses. We know how rewarding teaching the next generation of swimmers can be - and the best way to do this is through fun!
This week, it was our Dan’s turn to share his Game of the Week. As a former GB swimmer, 200m English record holder and England representative in the 2010 Commonwealth Games, it’s no surprise that Dan has a passion for all things swimming – and that didn’t stop after his career in competitive swimming... After retiring in 2011, Dan joined our sister company, Becky Adlington’s SwimStars as a swimming teacher.
So, the big reveal. Dan’s Game of the Week is… *cue drum roll*
Build a tower!
How to Play
Start by getting all of your floating foam bricks into the pool. Organise the class into teams, then race to collect the bricks and build a tower. The team with the highest tower wins!
What skills are they learning?
In this game, the swimmers will be working on Travel and Coordination, Buoyancy and Balance. As they advance, other skills can be thrown into the mix as well.
"This is a great game to kickstart any lesson. It's fun, engaging and gets the class ready for anything!” - Dan
