During Swim England Learn to Swim Stage 3, swimmers will develop their kicks, on both their front and their back.
They streamline through push and glides, whilst also swimming underwater.
Swimmers will develop safe entries into the water, including submersion, and travel up to 10 metres on their front and back. Water safety knowledge and rotation skills will also be progressed.
One of the fun areas of this stage is learning to go under the water to pick up an object.
