Zig-Zag is our weekly drama, music and craft workshop aimed at primary school aged children.
What happens at Zig-Zag?
We always aim to provide one-to-one support at Zig-Zag, so the session begins with a game of duck-duck-goose whilst athletes and coaches are paired up. After this, we find out what’s in store this week – often it’s a surprise to everyone! Each block of sessions follow a theme, which has recently included adventure films, fairytales, and Horrible Histories. Activities include games, art, craft, music and drama and are led by Zig-Zag session leaders. All are strung together by a story, complete with costumes and props. The session ends with a big Hokey Cokey.
What are the benefits of Zig-Zag?
The emphasis is on integration, creativity and fun. As with all KEEN sessions, athletes at Zig-Zag gain confidence and a sense of belonging. They have the chance to socialise, to use their imaginations and, most importantly, to enjoy themselves!
