  Failed roll / swimming
  Posted by: jaybabina on Sep-24-12 11:50 AM (EST)

There's really no reason for a person learning to roll to swim if they practice in water about 2 1/2 ft deep so they can push off the bottom if they fail the roll or ... practice with others so you can use a bow rescue.

When I was learning and was hitting about 50%, I never swam.
