Learning to submerge underwater - step-by-step

Submerging underwater is a vital stage in learning to swim and boosting confidence. It can also be a huge source of anxiety and fear in beginners. Let's break it down into stages that make it easier to teach and learn.

The ability to submerge the face is arguably one of the most important stages when learning to swim, particularly when overcoming a fear of water. Some beginners arrive with this ability built-in and only need to be taught a breathing technique. It will be one of the most terrifying tasks for others.

Stage 1: Getting the face wet

Stage 2: Partially submerging the face

Stage 3: Total Submersion and Swimming Underwater
