The initial start of a program, whether it is a new junior 8-week instructional program, adult theme mixer, member guest or a summer camp, includes some challenges. You often will have people who do not know each other, have not participated in a program at your facility or are nervous about participating.

Here is how Program Icebreakers can make a difference:

Create a positive group atmosphere
Help participants relax
Help participants to become more engaged
Energize the start of the program
Break down social barriers
Help participants get to know one another
Keep the icebreaker short and organized. You may be trying just to introduce people to each other or bridge the gaps between on court abilities and levels.

Here is a sample:

Icebreaker: Tennis Ball Can Name Game with Template

Click here to download template (To print use Avery Template 5294, 2.5" diameter 12 lables/sheets)

Here's a fun icebreaker with a tennis ball can theme. Use the template and print off the name tags editing the "balls" with the words; Penn, Wilson, Prince, etc or make up other words related to your facility or event. Add the same number next to three of the words to represent "three balls in a can". Either have participants draw a name tag and put their name on it or to save time you can have them ready in advance. The first three people that find their can (a can is three of the same numbers and words) with all three players reporting back to the desk or director win a prize (prizes can be a can of balls, games added to their score in a mixer or round robin, etc.). This is a fun way to meet people!
