Being adapted to the aquatic environment essentially means being able to float, move in water without the use of fixed supports or aids and dive support.
During this process both children and adults are faced with the domain of the body in the water. There are a number of aquatic forces with which we must adapt, among them the impulsion.
The aquatic environment creates new sensations, changes the balance by opening a wide field of experiments through the motor capacity being under the effect of a certain absence of gravity.
The balance, breathing and propulsion are the basic components inherent in the act of swimming, whose domain is necessary to ensure behavior adjusted to the water.
