Dive and Chase


To develop diving technique



Depth of Water



This activity can be used with small to large groups, as long as each person has a partner of similar ability


  • One member from each pair is in the water at the side of the pool, ready to swim across
  • The other member stands above, facing away from the water.
  • The teacher signals those in the water to commence swimming, and when they are a reasonable distance away from the wall gives the command, “GO”.
  • Those out of the water turn, dive in and give chase to their partners, attempting to tag them before they reach the safety of the other side of the pool.
  • The process is then repeated with team members switch roles
