Thank you very much for your ideas. Some are WSI and some just have our in house training.

GREAT IDEAS : ) I have done the role playing & i liked it, but they didnt enjoy it too much.

Thank you again Dana!

Hi there,

I was trained as a teacher but now run swim lessons. Some things we've done include
Role playing...dividing to have two people as students and one as an instructor to experiment being at different levels and see different teaching ideas.
Lists...Have everyone name one favorite term to use on kids, ballerina toes, rocket ships, deep sea explorers, just one phrase that is their top favorite that session.
Hard Case...Everyone bring up one kid that seems to not be "getting it". discuss, brainstorm ways to help the kid.
Pair off and stroke critique. Everyone needs an evaluation occasionally to maintain technique.

Are any or most of your instructors certified? Do they have WSI or YMCA certs? Is it a mix?
