The Vocabulary of Swimming

Swimming, like many sports has its own vocabulary and acronyms that can make reading a work out a mystery.  Understanding the sports terms is often necessary to look at a workout and understand what you are supposed to do.  I am often asked what is ‘drill’? Or what does P/K/S mean? To help out I have compiled a glossary of the most common terms and acronyms used by coaches, swimmers and officials.  Have a term I have not included in the attached glossary?  Post it below and I will define it for you and add it to the glossary.   Download or view the PDF Glossary of swimming terms.
