Split Up into 2 Groups

Group 1

Challenge = Water Hits

Throw a water bomb at a friend underwater.
Make an open palm hand, and push the water quickly towards someone.

Do not hit them!

Do it until the person feels the “push” of the water against their belly, against their back, and against their arm.

3 x SL + 3 FREE + Flip

Strong freestyle kick throughout.
Focus on arms reaching to 11, head aiming straight down, and power with each stroke.

If possible NO breath.

Group 2

Challenge – Make waves without breaking the surface

With both hands underwater, with open palms, push the water out and in as fast as you can, as close to the surface as you can so that you create giant waves between your face and the wall. See if you can get the water to splash over the edge of the pool without letting your hands go above the surface.

3 x SL on BK

Begin underwater. Lay on back, hands on head, grow into streamline. Push off in straight line.
