Shooting Sharks

Or a similar, more politically correct, named game for explosive breathing.

Use this at the start of Tadpole, backstroke and beginner lessons as an alternative or in addition to the introduction bubbles.

“Put your fingers together like a water pistol and say “perrph” with your lips.

Now do the same underwater. Let’s shoot some sharks.”

Come up for air and

“Reload! “

when you finish:

“Pretend you have been shot, lay still like you are a dead body”

Teacher should stay down the longest then,

“Everyone to the other side, last one there is a rotten egg”

Make sure you try and cheat and then come last.
