Game – Read the Map
Draw a map of the pool including lanes. Indicate where the board or where the directions are.
Write letters in different locations. Near a wall would be a short distance activity only using the same side. Writing in the lane would be a whole lane activity like 4 x 25’s.
On a separate board, write out what each letter’s activity is. Create a mix of short distance activities, skill work, games, and challenges. Include at least one aerobic “set” like 2x 25 or 2 x 50.
- No more than 2 groups or 4 people at one letter at a time. If someone else is there, go somewhere else.
- Follow the attached key.
- Do not touch the instructions.
- Do every letter.
