Stage 2 of the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway
Learn to Swim Fish At the end of this stage participants will be able to:
  1. Jump in from poolside safely
  2. Blow bubbles a minimum of 3 times rhythmically with nose and mouth submerged
  3. Regain upright position from the back without support
  4. Regain an upright position from the front without support
  5. Push from wall & glide on the back
  6. Push from wall & glide on the front
  7. Travel on the back for 5 metres, aids or equipment may be used
  8. Travel on the front for 5 metres, aids or equipment may be used
  9. Perform a rotation from the front to the back to gain an upright position
  10. Perform a rotation from the back to the front to gain an upright position

 

During Stage 2 swimmers will develop safe entries to the water and will continue to practice floating, travel and rotation in the water. Remember swimmers can still use aids e.g. arm bands and floats to help complete this stage.

Games

So let's make Stage 2 fun with a little game of "Dinner on a plate".

Place a small floating toy on each player’s float. Players travel with the feet off the floor, kicking and holding the float very still so the toy does not fall off. Repeat until chosen number of toys has been carried or turn the game into a relay.

"Dinner on a plate" helps your pupils to develop kicking and buoyancy among other skills and is a great way to get them to travel on their front for five metres.
