100 metre swimming relay and competition.

One of the 'Cub Year Of Adventure 2015' activities


Swimming pool, timer.


1. Divide the pack into mixed ability teams and into lanes in the swimming pool.
2. Each young person is to swim 100m of the pool using front crawl or breaststroke and then 100m of back stroke. Which team can complete the swim the fastest?
3. Now to test their ability to float.

How long can they float for? Who can tread water for 100 seconds?
Take a record of all their times and see who lasted the longest.

An alternative activity should be arranged for non-swimmers.
