True or False Game

Everyone gets out of the water. Line up with a fair amount of space between each person. Two feet’s toes on the edge.

“If I say something true, you jump in. If I say something false, do not jump in.

If you’re wrong, you’re out. Last one in wins. If everyone is out, I win.”

1st statement is easy and always true.
“This is a swimming pool.” or something similar.

Then ask swimming questions getting ever more specific.
“you must touch the wall with 2 hands on freestyle” – False. You don’t HAVE to.

Make statements about the coach that the swimmers would know.
“My name is…”
“I went to high school at…”
innocuous innocent facts that are appropriate for a child setting.
