Swimming Game – Champion Swimmer

Advanced swimmer game:

Have each lane pick one “champion” that will participate. Do not tell the swimmers what stroke or activity they will be doing.

After each lane has chosen a Champion, tell them what they will do.  EXAMPLE: Champions must swim a 50 Freestyle with flip turn and correct streamline.

If the champion passes or succeeds, then the lane does the same activity together. Champion gets to rest. EXAMPLE Lane does 50 Freestyle.

If the champion fails, or does an illegal stroke, the lane and the champion has to do 2x the activity KICK. EXAMPLE: 100 FREE Kick.

Tips: Include correct streamlines with locked thumbs and squeezed ears to increase challenge. Include specific steps of an open turn, flip turn, underwater pullout, or fly kicks off the wall, or breathing in and out of turn.

Better swimming.
