L4 Swimming

On Friday, we traveled to the Makino Pool to be 'tested' on our swimming skills.  This assessment is all about our technique, and our ability to swim certain distances.  It is not about speed!  At our level, the expectations are pretty high, and we were tested on the following:

  • 100m freestyle
  • 100m backstroke
  • 100m breaststroke
  • 50m sidestroke
  • diving
  • floating on our backs for 3 minutes
  • treading water for 3 minutes
  • swimming 50m in our clothes

It was fantastic to see everyone trying their very best - well done team!  After our assessments, we had a bit of time for some crazy fun in the diving pool...
