Preps in the Pool

It's Tuesday!  One day closer to the end of BMT for the Prep Class of 2019.

The basics had another full day starting with intramurals.  We slept in this morning, however.  Don't worry, we will get them in intramurals once more before the end of BMT.  Our photo opportunity today was the swimming assessment.  The basics were divided into groups based on their stated swimming proficiency.  Novice, Intermediate, & Advanced.  It was pretty much a bell curve with the biggest group being intermediate.   After watching them swim, I think some basics underestimated their skill level.  The novices worked in the shallow end, while the advanced were in the deep end.   The intermediates and advanced swam two lengths of the pool both free style and back stroke.  The novices swam across the pool and also demonstrated the ability to hold their breath under, float, etc. 

Everyone seemed to enjoy the water.  It was a hot day today and the chance to get out of those long sleeved ABU's and cool off in the pool likely was a refreshing change in the daily grind of training. 

Here are a few photos.  The rest are all up in the BMT gallery.


Tomorrow, is another busy day.  We will be out early and the schedule has photo opportunities throughout the day, so there should be lots of pictures for your viewing please.  Until then, enjoy all the smiling faces from the pool.
