“Things I always wanted to know about swimming but didn’t even know what to ask”! Compiled and published by Sue & Mick Nelson - Turtles Swimming

A Glossary of strange and wacky words used in the sport of swimming has been merged into this wiki. You may or may not find these words in the English Dictionary, and if you do, their definitions will probably be radically different than the ones listed in this Glossary. Relax and take your time reading. Soon you'll be understanding and maybe even speaking some "SWIMSLANG".

[Disclaimer: Thus list is not meant to supercede any rule book or official glossary. It is simply a common-sense explanation of some concepts that are not familiar to the new-swimming family.]
