Hey everyone! Another spring sport that is big in the United States, especially California, is swimming! The swim team is another large sport at the high school, so everyone can have a chance to be a part of the team. In the fall, water polo is the main water sport. Water polo is a team sport with six players and one goalkeeper for each side. Players must swim and tread water and try to score the most goals possible. Since it is a swimming sport, many players move to the swim team in the spring.
The swim team is less of a team game and more individual. Swimmers compete in different length races with different stokes like breaststroke or backstroke, even relays with different teammates. The swimmer who completes the race fastest wins. This is a good sport for people of any level because it is mainly individual. This gives every person a chance to get comfortable in an event and practice without the pressure from the rest of the team. If your looking for a fun active sport for people of all ages, swimming is the sport for you!
