Swimming through legs

Share this page

This is a fun game and good for developing swimming confidence under the water.

Start by standing in a star shape with someone else facing you. The person opposite you then has to try and swim through your legs under the water. Make sure you open them wide enough. Once they do it you swap over.

If you find this a bit easy, try getting two people standing with their legs open and try swim through both in one go.
