Beyond the Black Line is delivered through online videos and face-to-face workshops. It’s designed by swimmers for young swimmers aged between 13 and 18 years old. Younger club members, who are early bloomers, can take part with parents' consent at a slightly younger age.
The videos give your members the chance to explore topics relevant to them and give you a taste of what hosting a workshop offers. In a 90-minute workshop, they have the chance to share the experiences of a past or present Australian Dolphin and ask questions to help them overcome any obstacles and improve their future possibilities.
Delivered separately to groups of boys and girls, workshops cover topics such as self-esteem, body image, puberty, pressure and life balance. And the all-important, communicating with club coaches and team mates.
The workshops are open to young swimmers of all levels and abilities. They are held on a boys or girls only basis. It’s the best way we know to keep the atmosphere relaxed and the conversation flowing.
If your club members or their parents feel they need more advice the Beyond the Workshop page is a good starting point.ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
