3) Look down (with your whole face).

Split Up into 2 Groups

Group 1

3 x Flip at wall 1st, then SL on back

Start close to the wall, facing wall.

Do a front flip towards the wall. Plant feet on wall, lay backwards, and SL on back underwater.

Group 2

3 x SL + 3 FR + lay on side one arm in 11, face down and float with 10 kicks.

Goal is laying on the side. Avoid belly laying. Most swimmers will get confused with the arm raised forward and will put it in the air and look up. Goal is looking down, nose in armpit. “Smell your sticky armpits.”

Challenge = Water Hits

Throw a water bomb at a friend underwater.
Make an open palm hand, and push the water quickly towards someone.

Do not hit them!

Do it until the person feels the “push” of the water against their belly, against their back, and against their arm.

Challenge –

Float on your back with your face above water and all 10 toes and both of your thumbs (but not hands).

Or all of your fingers but NOT your thumbs.


Challenge: Lay flat underwater like Goldielocks

Float on your side, like you’re laying down on your side reading a book exactly in the middle of the water from the surface and from the bottom.

Like Goldielocks, not too deep, not too shallow.
Perfectly in the middle.
