Swimmer waits until they hear, “take your mark.”
Bend at the waist, grasping the forward edge of the block outside the foot already curled over edge. Use both fingers and thumbs in front.
Look at back leg.

Game – Triathlon: Swim, Bike, Run
Do all three for time.
- Swim 50 yards.
- Bike, 50 yards.
- Run (walk) around the pool deck 1 time.
Swim = Freestyle
Bike = ride a noodle and “pedal” feet. Without noodles sit around a kickboard or two kickboards with the curved part aiming forward and use hands and feet to “bike.” Remain upright, and not laying flat with face in the water.
Run = Walk around the deck, or if you have a space to run, run around the pool.
Write down everyone’s start time, and the total amount of time until they “finish.”
