Main

Menu

Slide5

Freestyle

MainMenu

In freestyle, your arms will reach forward above the waters surface and pull back under the water in an hourglass figure.For your legs, you will do a flutter kick which are powerful but small kicks under the waters surface.Most swimmers will breathe every three strokes for freestyle.

Slide6

Backstroke

Main

Menu

For backstroke your arms will move like a windmill.

The legs will be the same as freestyle, a flutter kick.

This stroke is nice because you have the ability to breathe the entire time.

Slide7

Breaststroke

For breaststroke your arms will start by you chest, you then thrust them forwards and pull them in a circular motion towards your waist and back up to your chest.For the legs, you do a frog kick. They will be brought up to your waist, and kicked outwards and brought together and back up to your body.

MainMenu

Slide8

Butterfly

Main

Menu

This is the most difficult stroke to learn/perform.

The arms in butterfly will rotate all the way around the shoulder joint and into the water where the hands will make a key hole figure before coming back out of the water and repeating the process.

The legs will stay together and will move like a dolphin or mermaid tail would.

What is water safety and why is it important?

“Drowning is the second most common cause of death from injuries among kids under the age of 14.”If the water is too cold, don’t swim in it. The coldness makes your muscles weak and can prevent you from swimming or getting out of the water.Knowing the depth of the water you will be swimming in is important. You would not want to jump into the water and hit the bottom surface, a rock, or get trapped in seaweed.
