Basic front crawl
Around the Academy:

Step one

When you first try front crawl, swim with all of your body close to the surface of the water, keeping your hips and legs behind your shoulders.

Imagine you are trying to swim through a narrow tube without touching the sides.

A good way of doing this is to put your face in the water and keep your legs kicking all of the time.
