Swimming – Demonstration of Preliminary Skills in Swimming
Preliminary Skills in Swimming
Entering the Water: Approach the poolside or the edge of the water calmly and confidently. Step in or jump in, depending on the depth and your comfort level.
Submersion: Submerge yourself completely underwater, making sure your face is comfortably submerged. This helps you get used to being in the water.
Floating on Your Back: Lie on your back in the water, keeping your body horizontal and relaxed. Your head should be comfortably floating, with your ears just below the surface.
Floating on Your Front: Float on your front with your face in the water. Keep your body stretched out and relaxed. Practice blowing bubbles and exhaling slowly underwater.
Kicking: Practice kicking your legs while holding onto the pool’s edge or using a kickboard. Your legs should move in a fluttering motion.
Arm Movements: While floating on your front, practice moving your arms in a circular motion. This simulates the basic arm movements of swimming.
Breathing: Practice inhaling through your mouth and exhaling through your nose while floating on your front. Breathing is essential in swimming.
Basic Strokes: Demonstrate a simple arm stroke, like the doggy paddle or the elementary backstroke. These strokes help you move through the water.
These preliminary skills are the foundation of becoming a confident swimmer. Mastering them will help you feel comfortable and safe in the water.
