Offering 12 easy-to-follow steps designed to help swimmers learn and master basic strokes, dives and other aquatic skills, this text focuses on the body's natural buoyancy as the basis for all swimming strokes. The book helps even the most inexperienced swimmer build water confidence and move from a simple back float to sidestroke, crawl, elementary backstroke and breaststroke. Proper kicking and breathing techniques are emphasized throughout. Also included are chapters on using a mask and snorkel, executing horizontal and vertial turnovers, and diving safely into the water from pool deck or diving board.
