Mr Wolf


A great fun warmup activity



Depth of the Water

Knee deep to waist deep


  1. One member of the group is designated the wolf and stands facing away from the rest of the group, who are standing on the pool wall.
  2. The rest of the group chant ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?” to which the wolf replies with a time e.g. 3 oclock, 4 oclock etc
  3. The group moves forward the number of steps based on the wolfes response, e.g 3 oclock – 3 steps towards the wolf
  4. Eventually the wolf will reply to the chant with “Dinner Time”, in which he or she will turn and chase the group back to the wall attempting to tag as many swimmers as possible

Tagged swimmers become wolfes and the last person to be tagged is the winner
