This level is an introduction to breast stroke (15m) and feet-first surface dives. Swimmers learn about the dangers of open water, hypothermia, the performance of rescue breathing on children and adults, and standing shallow dives. Swimmers participate in timed treading water activities using the eggbeater skill for 3 minutes to improve their ability to remain at the surface in the event of an unexpected fall into water. Endurance is built on a 300m swim. Front crawl and back crawl distances are increased to 75m each.
Starting on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all community members 12 years of age and older to enter Carleton University Recreation and Athletics facilities using the cuScreen system.
