Game description

This game is suitable for any size of groups. Before everybody jumps into the water, the team leader lays down the rules. Then everybody hops into the water and safely swim and dives around, keeping an eye on the team leader who stands at the pool’s edge.

They have to stay in this position until the team leader tells them otherwise. If he calls out, “Stone,” all kids pull their knees high up to their chest and stay in this position, again, until the team leader tells them otherwise.
