The underwater swimming game is a fun kid swimming race.
It's also one of the cool outdoor activities and team building games for kids.
Adult supervision is needed.
This should be played in shallow water, not at the deep end of the swimming pool.
Kids who are afraid of swimming under the water shouldn't play.
While this activity is recommended for kids starting at age 6, each individual child is different.
Each has different swimming skills, and that should be taken into consideration.
Begin by dividing the kids into 2 equal teams.
The teams line up in waist high water, one player behind another player on her team.
There should be an arm's length between the players.
An adult leader shouts "go!" and the player first in line goes underwater and swims between her teammates' legs.
When she swims through the last player in line's legs, she stands up and is now the last person in line.
The player who was behind her, now the first player in line, swims underwater the same way the first player did.
When she swims through the last player's legs, she, too, stands at the end of the line and the next player goes.
Play continues with each player in line doing the underwater race.
The first team to complete the race is the winner.
