Why Choose Swimming as a Sport?

Swimming is more than a sport and a form of exercise - it’s a way of life. Swimming is an excellent lifetime activity for health and well being. Athletes in USA Swimming programs learn about perseverance, determination, goal setting, achievement, dedication, and commitment. Swimmers learn time management skills, self-discipline, courage, and self-control. They learn how to win and strive for excellence. Swimmers take these skills with them into school, work, and life. They become good neighbors, friends, employees, and community members. They build character through the pursuit of excellence in competitive swimming.
