The swimming module is a broad sweep of the structure and types of swimming competitions, the various strokes, starts and rules. It outlines the common injuries found in swimming athletes, particularly related to the various strokes, along with technique issues contributing to the injury. Medical conditions commonly experienced by swimmers are also considered. The module discusses the typical scheduling of swimming meets, and the standard training regimes of elite swimmers throughout the training year. There is reference to managing time and training during the competition period.

The content experts are both experienced national and international level sport and exercise physicians, caring for elite swimming teams for many years.
