Then Maria switches hands with Pablo Sanchez and Ashley switches hands with Reese Worthington. Then Pablo switches hands with Luanne Lui and Reese switches hands with Sidney Webber. Then Luanne switches hands with Dante Robinson and Sidney switches hands with Mikey Thomas. Then Dante finishes first. Then Maria, Pablo, Luanne, and Dante celebrate their victory and give each other a high five, while the other backyard kids and the pro kids congratulate them. Then the Backyard Swimming logo appears.

(*) = An asterisk means that Battle Swim Race is like survival mode, but in Backyard Swimming fashion, and there are unlimited laps. Battle Swim Race (Individual) is a free-for-all match where the swimmer who survives and swims with the most laps and the most stamina wins. Battle Swim Race (Team) is where the team that swims and survives with the most laps and the most stamina wins.
