Duckling 4

In order to provide the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills, swimmers are required to show all 6 tasks consistently. A buoyancy aid can be used. Children should submerge completely unaided.
  •         Jump into the water, unaided, but supervised 
  •         Show a mushroom or star float
  •         Rotate 360 degrees either horizontally or vertically
  •         Push and glide achieving a streamlined position on the front or back
  •         Submerge completely
  •         Travel without assistance 10 metres on the front or back assistance (it is                                     recommended that an appropriate buoyancy aid is used)
  •         Show the sequence to jump in the water, turn around, swim back to the point of                         entry and hold on to the side or rail
  •         Climb out of the water with assistance if required
