FROZEN TAG IN THE WATER

THIS GAME IS PLAYED ON THE SAME GENERAL BASIS AS FROZEN TAG EXCEPT
THAT IT IS PLAYED IN A SWIMMING POOL. THE PLAYERS INCLUDE ONE PERSO
WHO IS "IT" AND THE REST TRY TO SWIM AWAY FROM "IT" WITHOUT BEING
TAGGED. IF SOMEONE IS TAGGED HE MUST STAND (OR IN DEEP WATER HE MUS
TREAD WATER) UNTIL ANOTHER PLAYER IS ABLE TO SWIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS
UNDER WATER. THAT TAGGED PLAYER IS THEN SET FREE UNTIL HE IS TAGGED
AGAIN. AFTER A PERSON HAS BEEN TAGGED THREE TIMES BY "IT", HE
BECOMES THE NEW "IT".

Submitter comment: THE INFORMANT AND HER FRIENDS ORIGINALLY INVENTED AND PLAYED THIS
GAME AT PINEBROOK SWIM CLUB IN SOUTHFIELD, MICHIGAN. IT IS STILL A
POPULAR GAME AT THE SWIM CLUB.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; SOUTHFIELD
