  4. What is swimming? • Swimming is a water based physical activity and competitive sport. • It is composed of four main strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Main Menu

  5. Freestyle • 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. Main Menu

  6. Backstroke • 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. Main Menu

  7. 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. Main Menu

  8. Butterfly • 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.

  24. 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.

You would not want to jump into the water and hit the bottom surface, a rock, or get trapped in seaweed. Main Menu
