The start of something extraordinary


Crossing centre lines and moving both sides of the body are imperative for successful swimming. Catching bubbles is an excellent way to work on crossing centre lines and hand eye co ordination. Challenge your swimmers to catch bubbles with certain parts of their bodies, pop them between their fingers or catch them gently without making any pop! Bubbles could be used as a game at the end of a class or as an activity to break up a skill set. You could even use them to teach beginner swimmers to blow their air out as they blow their own bubbles through a bubble wand.
