Disney-inspired Family Fun Sessions get a sprinkling of Frozen 2 magic

The popular Swim England Disney-inspired Family Fun Sessions are to get a sprinkling of Frozen 2 magic.

From Saturday 1 February, more than 220 pools across the country will feature characters from the animated classic – including Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven – to help families get active in the water.

The family-friendly sessions are ideal for three to 11-year-olds, delivered by a trained activator and include 10 exciting Disney Frozen 2 themed games based on core aquatic skills.

From ‘Elsa’s Ice Glide’ and ‘Taming the Nokk’, to ‘Sven and Kristoff’s Ride to Safety’ and ‘Charades with Olaf’, Disney’s much-loved Frozen 2 characters will inspire games that focus on key swimming techniques to encourage kids to feel more confident and enjoy the water.

Jennifer Powell, Swim England senior project marketing manager, said: “Frozen 2 has been a big hit in cinemas across the country and it will give a new twist to our popular Disney-inspired Family Fun sessions.”

More than 50,000 mums, dads and youngsters have taken part in the Disney-inspired Family Fun Sessions since they were launched last June.

Extremely popular

The first wave featured Woody, Buzz and the gang in Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 themed sessions before youngsters enjoyed making a splash with Mickey Mouse and Friends.

Jennifer added: “It’s been great to hear that so many people have enjoyed the Disney-inspired Family Fun Sessions so far.

Toy Story 4 and Mickey Mouse and Friends were extremely popular and we’re delighted that our favourite characters from Frozen 2 will now be the inspiration for thousands of more youngsters and their families to get active in the coming months.”

The Frozen 2 sessions will run until the end of May and have been scheduled to coincide with the film’s digital release on Monday 16 March.

Frozen 2 is officially the highest-grossing animated film of all time.

Swim England’s year-long collaboration with Disney forms part of Disney UK’s wider Healthy Living commitment, designed to use the power of Disney’s characters and storytelling to inspire families to lead healthier lifestyles.
