Abstract: Swimming often seems to be placed in a category separate from other sports. yet it has many common elements which affect skill or proficiency: coordination, balance, kinesthetic sense, rhythm, flexibility, power, and strength. The one basic difference is the medium in which this activity is performed; that is, water. This condition adds more components to the list; resistance, relaxation, breathing, buoyancy, and fear now play important roles. Then even those elements common to land activities may assume a new dimension.
