Fireman Pole, Deep water confidence


This PURPOSE FULL PLAY activity helps develop: “Manatee”, “Treasure Hunter”, and “Flying Fish”.

* This activity will help the student realize that sinking is a challenge, and helps to develop trust and confidence in their buoyancy.
* To achieve full FLYING FISH status, the student must be an independent swimmer, fearless in any depth.
* This is a fun way to begin learning to retrieve toys off the floor of the deep end of the pool.
