BUSINESS SWIM FOR DIABETES
Business Suit Relay
The Business Suit Relay consists of four participants and a jacket and a pair of pants. The object of this relay is to complete four lengths of the pool as quickly as possible while wearing the provided business suit. You may swim any stroke you would like. Once the first swimmer has completed swimming a length of the pool, the swimmer must get out of the pool and take off the jacket and pants by themselves and hand it off to a second swimmer. All the swimmers must then put the suit on completely by themselves and swim a length of the pool. This will continue until four lengths of the pool have been completed. Remember...the jacket and pants must be worn on the proper appendages!
Each participant must swim one length of the pool. The participant must swim freestyle.
The stroke to be used in this relay is called corkscrew. To swim the corkscrew you must do a one-arm stroke of the freestyle then turn yourself over and do a one-arm stroke of the backstroke and repeat the process over and over until you have completed one length of the pool. Do not do a full stroke of freestyle or backstroke. A full stroke consists of using your left and right arms to complete a cycle.
In this relay each participating swimmer will swim one lap of a different stroke. The order of the relay is butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle. Once your teammate has touched the wall of the opposite end of the pool, the next teammate may jump or dive into the pool to swim their particular stroke.
Inner Tube Relay
An inner tube will be provided for this relay. Each participant will start in the water and swim one length of the pool with at least part of the body touching or in the inner tube. You can choose to move down the lane any way as long as contact between the inner tube and the body remains at all times. The relay is completed when the last swimmer of each team touches the finish wall with the inner tube.
Name Your Time
This relay can be done at any pace; the fastest team will not necessarily win the event. Each team must submit an estimated time to complete four lengths of the pool. For example, if each swimmer believes they can do one length of the pool in 30 seconds, the estimated team time would be 2 minutes. The team closest to their projected time will win the event. Each swimmer will swim one length of the pool. The swimmers can choose any stroke. Once your teammate has touched the wall, the next swimmer may jump or dive into the pool to swim their leg of the relay.
Note: Team Captains must submit their estimated time before the first relay of the night.
