The Water Sports Pass is the second stage of the ENF training program for the swimmer.
The French Swimming School (ENF) is a training program for the French Swimming Federation (FFN), hosted within the Interfederal Council of Aquatic Activities.
This program is structured around three stages in which the child develops various skills:
-The Passports of water
Each of these steps is validated by a test whose success is essential to be able to go to the next step. Children born from 2004 must have validated all these events to be able to participate in the competitions of the federal official program. This article presents the different tests of this program.
-Step 1: The rescue
This test is in the form of a course that assesses different skills to ensure its own safety in the water. It can be admitted as a safety test for the practice of nautical activities.
The course is done in great depth and without glasses. Here is the procedure:
-Sake in the water and let yourself go up passively
-To immobilize in ventral position (starfish) for 5 seconds
-Warm up to a hoop on the water and enter it
-Rest in vertical position for 5 seconds inside the hoop
-Alternate on a distance of 15 to 20 meters, a ventral displacement and the passage under obstacles (3 to 4)
-To immobilize for 5 seconds on the back
-Water on the back between 15 and 20 meters
-Go for an object located on 1.8m deep and bring it to the surface.
Step 2: Passports of water
It’s a discovery of different aquatic disciplines: diving, water polo, synchronized swimming, swimming with fins and sport swimming. A test is proposed in each of these disciplines, to validate the passport of the water
-The water polo
-The swim with purposes
Step 3: The passcompetition
The pass’competition is the last step of the training course. Unlike the previous stages, this test is specific to a discipline, each sport has its own pass’competition.
In swimming, the test consists of a 100 meter medley (butterfly, back, breaststroke and crawl). There are no time requirements
-knowledge of the competition environment: presentation to the Appeals Chamber, respect of the departure procedure, etc.
-the respect of the regulatory constraints of the event (swimming and bends).
-the mastery of the techniques used in competition such as diving or casting.
