Hosting a Workshop
Workshops provide a safe environment for boys and girls in separate sessions to listen, learn and talk about what is going in their club and beyond.
Hearing how swimmers have been through the same challenges can be such a relief.
Making sure parents feel confident that BTBL is right for their kids is crucial. To be sure parents are ok with the content, there is a parent handout available that covers the topics and what is discussed during the workshop. If requested we can present a 10-15 minute overview of the program before the face-to-face workshop starts.
The online videos are housed in a locked section and require a parent’s email address before they can be accessed by anyone under 18 years.CONTACT US TO BOOK A WORKSHOP
SELF-ESTEEMWatch this video
Building your own self-identity can be challenging. It’s about being more than a swimmer. It can often include overcoming bullying or embracing disability.

MAKE YOUR BODY WORK FOR YOUWatch this video
When it comes to body shape there are no rules. Your future is not dictated by what you look like or what shape you are. It’s what you do with your body that matters.
With: Cate Campbell, Jade Neilson, Sally Hunter, Ellie Cole & Nicole Livingstone
GOALS AND PRESSUREWatch this video
Dealing with disappointment, being courageous and enjoying yourself are important skills to learn. It’s essential to set goals that are challenging but achievable.
With: Michael Bohl (Coach), Michael Klim, Kyle Richardson, Brendan Hall & Elijah Winnington
The minimum workshop group number is 10 girls or boys, between 13 and 18 years of age. You can request either a girls or boys workshop, or both, depending on your numbers. If you want to run both, we suggest they are run concurrently, in two separate locations.
As the host club you need to provide a venue with a suitable room for the number of swimmers expected. The workshop facilitator will only be traveling with a USB, so you will need AV facilities including a computer, screen and speakers.
If you haven’t got the venue facilities or the numbers, you can always team up with another club to host a workshop. Or to make it easier you could tie it in with a swimming meet.
Workshops are currently fully funded* by Swimming Australia and the Australian Swimmers Association.
*There a limited number of free face to face workshops available to clubs for the remainder of the financial year.
