Before the game starts, choose a leader or student to be the “caller”. After you have chosen the caller, have all the players line up at the diving board or outside the pool. The “caller” will then think of a category e.g. colors, animals, Disney movies, ice cream flavors, etc. Once the caller is ready one person will jump off the diving board/deep end. As the player jumps, the caller will yell a category to the jumping player. The player who jumps off has to name something in that category before they hit the water. If he or she does, they pass and return to the line. If they do not, they are out. The game continues until one person is the winner. The winner of the game then becomes the caller for the next round.
Pro tip: We recommend jumping high so you have time to think about the category!
