This Swimming Activity is a requirement of the Scouts who are earning the Merit badge Swimming,
As a beginner you face many challenges in learning freestyle. There's getting accustomed with the water, learning the actions of the stroke, learning how to breathe and very possibly overcoming fear of the water. Don't worry, that's normal!
As swimming coaches we teach the basics of freestyle to novice swimmers every day. Overcoming those challenges is never easy but with a little determination and with our knowledge and methods you're going to crack it for sure.
