Children may be failing at fitness, but WaterART Kidz Fitness will help to get children enjoying the benefits of water exercise. Targeted for children aged 8-12, (and could be for younger children within a two year age span) this program will fast track the swim instructor or certified WaterART Instructor to learn a complete 10 lesson plan program. We recommend that each lesson plan is 30 minutes , and may be scheduled once per week for 10 weeks or everyday for a 2 week camp program.
Structured as a 10 lesson plan (30 minute session), is a ready to go program, may be implemented as a program that runs simultaneously with swim lessons or, as a stand-alone new kids fitness program.
To fast track the learning of this program, WaterART has created a manual, 55 minute educational DVD, report card system and 10 laminated programs cards. The onsite program involves 8 hours of training (4 hours of theory & 4 hours of pool time). Additionally the program may be purchased as a correspondence resource program for self learning.
The program will detail over 200 exercises for shallow and/or deep water exercise. Each lesson plan utilizes 20 exercises including 5 warm up exercises, 5 individual skills and drills, 5 group and/or partner activities, and finishes up with 5 warm down and relaxation exercises. To keep the programs interesting and creative, equipment such as balls, noodles and buoyancy belts (for non swimmers) are incorporated for agility, balance and coordination. Turn your pool into a playground of opportunity using a simple yet creative approach with WaterART Kidz.
This innovative program will provide a foundation for building childrens fitness programs in the pool. Each lesson plan will be reviewed for a complete and balanced program. We promise instructors and children alike will enjoy this new dimension of pool exercises.
The onsite program includes:
8 hours training ( 4 hours pool time),
Kids Instructor Manual,
10 laminated program cards for pool side use,
Laminated Report Card System
DVD024 - Kids Fitness Instructor ( Shallow & Deep H20 )
