    crawl) and breaststroke. 

  • Swim 20 yards, surface dive to a depth of 7-10
    feet, retrieve a 10 pound object, return to the surface,
    swim 20 yards back to the starting point with the
    object in both hands (head out of water), and climb
    out of the pool without using the steps or ladder
    within 1 minute 40 seconds.
