Fall/Winter 2011-2012 Swimming Skills Center
Recreational swimming is a great way to relax. Swimming is an excellent form of exercise, providing a full-body workout. Some occupations even require workers to swim, such as lifeguarding and marine biology. Swimming is a competitive sport and a beautiful art. However, it can be a very dangerous activity for the inexperienced.
