M. Mirror Game

Mirror Game

Why: Breath Control 

How: Prop a kick-board with a mirror stuck to it along the wall (one for each student).  Have parents take a few steps back and support their child under their arms.  Cue 1-2-3 then under and swim to the wall.  Encourage students to grasp the wall (if possible) and look up into the mirror.  Practice a few times. 

For More Advanced Students; ask parents to release thier student under water just before the wall, to allow the student to float / glide into the wall and grab on.
