Back float
Floating on the back is a skill some children find easy, many find difficult. It is a must for all kids to learn as this is the primary safety position when a swimmer cannot reach the side of the pool or safety. Back floating is also the first step towards learning Backstroke. Just like all uSwim skills, there are gradual steps that allow you to take even a nervous child and over time get them comfortable on their back.
4 easy steps to back-floating:

1. Shoulder supported float
2. 2-hand supported float
3. 1-hand supported float
4. Free-float
