I coach a group of 8-11 years old kids.
In general we swim 1-2 sets per session w/o hard target times. I instruct them only to swim fast and hold the time through the set.

At the beginning of each session we watch swim clips I prepared at home. They show normally a part of a swim stroke in an endless loop. I tell them the key points and after 2 mins they close their eyes to visualize the stroke. Then I tell them to jump in the water and swim exactly like the olympians in the video.

Also I always try to bring some fun in the session. I.e. When we do wall kicking I ask some trivia questions and for every wrong answer they have to kick as fast as possible for 15s.
