6-Month Practice Plan
Introduction and Instructions
Over 6 months, the Practice Plan is your practice through the entire freestyle fundamentals and most important advanced skills.
Skills for Level 1 and Level 2, and Pool Skills are organized over 6 months.
Each month there are two practice series. Each series provides 4 practice types and 1 test swim, for a total of 10 practices. Each practice provides 3 different levels of difficulty. You may repeat any of the practices – which we do highly recommend – each week.
You may work through the Practice Plan on Level 1 in 6 months, then go through the plan again on Level 2 for another 6 months as your skill and fitness increase.
You may like to return to the plan periodically to refresh your skills.
