Swimming 101: The Introductory Guide to Swimming

United States Masters Swimming (USMS) has provided a comprehensive guide to learning more about swimming.

It is great for beginners all the way to more advanced swimmers. After reading this, you may not be an Olympian but you will have the foundation to start your own swimming journey. Their course touches on lingo, equipment, stroke technique, types of events, and everything in between.

This is a high-level crash course broken into four parts. USMS recommends you start with The Basics and work your way through to Events. However, you can jump around to what is most relevant to you. USMS will be adding complementary videos throughout 2024 so check back for further updates. Dive in!
