Games for Swimming Lessons: Water Discovery - BOBBING RACE

This swimming game is played in shallow water players line up in chest-deep water either in team or as individual.

At the signal, the swimming students start for the opposite side of the pool , bobbing as they go. The students must keep both feet together, duck all the way under water, place feet on bottom, push off and straighten up so that the body comes up out of the water to the hips, then repeat; continue this action, leaning forward slightly so that motion toward the goal is obtained).

The arms of the students may be used for balance and extra forward speed.

The first (or second or third if you choose) contestant to reach the opposite side wins.

If this is made into a relay, the first team to have all members on the opposite from the start wins.

Enjoy
