Summary

The aim of this level is to comfortably swim 300 metres of normal Freestyle with correct technique. The transition from catch-up Freestyle to normal Freestyle, improves stroke efficiency which enables kids to swim longer distances. We also introduce the Breaststroke kick and improve Backstroke technique in this level. The main challenge of Bull Sharks is to develop the stamina and endurance to maintain correct Freestyle technique over 300 metres. Some children however, can also find elements of learning Breaststroke kick and Backstroke arms challenging.
