Q&AI am a normal swimmer, could I join?  Yes you can join.  As a normal swimmer, you can either sign up for  1.5KM normal swim or  "Swim like Sabki". The later is to swim with a single arm stroke.   Normal kids (7-12 years old) or an adult could join 500m fun swim too.


Q&A How do I swim with single arm?  Use only one arm at a time, right or left for every stroke; you may exchange it at any time. Your non-stroking arm can be extended in front your body or may be left trailing along your body.
