Lilo Race: 2 swimmers.  One starts on the lilo; the other swims behind, and pushes the lilo to the far end where they swap over and return.  The winner is the team who both touch the end first.

Ball Race: 2 swimmers, one starts at each end of the pool.  One swimmer has the ball.  They both start swimming towards each other.  On meeting the ball is passed over to the other swimmer, who then changes direction and returns with the ball to the end at which they started.  The winner is the first swimmer with their ball who reaches the end.
