Abstract

Success in competitive swimming depends upon physiologic, biomechanical and psychological characteristics as well as the training and competition envirnonment provided to the competitor. The latter is particularly important in age-group swimmers. the objectives of this paper are to examine the relationships between swimming performance of children and adolescents and selected physiologic characteristics, to discuss the possible effects of swim training on growth and maturation and to outline the thermoregulatory responses of young swimmers.
