Do a streamline with all three things. At surface kick in position 11. Put one arm at hips, keeping the other arm extended forward above the shoulder on the surface.

Take one breath to side, continuing to kick.

Look down again, and kick in position 1 for 5 more kicks. The goal is side breaths.

Use the lifeguard tubes. Have swimmers do position 11 with the tubes, simulate a rescue, and swim free with the tube. Basically using the tube like a noodle or a floating prop to work on kicking and turning head to the side to breathe.

“Scan your lane” is a swim where you breathe to both sides “scanning” to make sure no one is drowning.

if they pass all “tests” they become a lifeguard.
