Hello
With all this bobbing up and down in the swim pool water, I wondered if players carry small amounts of weights or their swim suits may be weighted in some way. That sort of thinking.

When I hold my breath I float!

Thanks for any info. Tina

Some do! Cool
But I think it relates to Bodymass index?!.

Added weights are not needed (that I've heard of). A lot of players do not actually take a full lung of air - just a 'sip', or a reasonable gulp. You will often see underwater, players exhaling in order to drop down quicker if their body position gets too high above the pool floor.

So bouyancy is not so much of a prob, if you take smaller breaths. Also, a player is often finning along, and can keep at depth by angling fins ,body posture etc in order to hydroplane at the desired height/depth in the water.

Just a few thoughts.

technique and practise are what spring to my mind. I will always try to have full air in take, you never know how long or how far you need to swim or stay down in the game.

Surface dives help - this type of technique if carried out correct pulls the body down towards the bottom naturally, without the need to kick and struggle...

other techniques such as sculling of the arms to position when on the bottom of the pool can also help with position and mainitaining depth.
