Swimming Games

Welcome to the internet’s biggest and best list of swimming games. You’ll find swim games for lessons and for competitive swim teams.

These are the games we use in both our own swim lesson program and our competitive swim team.

The swimming game descriptions follow this general formula:

  • Category
  • Core Skill
  • Name
  • How
  • What
  • Who

You’ll find more information on these categories, core skills, and game design in the book, “How to Create Fun and Effective Swim Games.

Challenges are the new “games”

Start creating specific challenges tailor-made for your swimmers so they stay engaged and feel accomplishment with your own personal challenges!

Each game will give you instructions on how to play it, what exactly you need or how to describe the rules, and who it is appropriate to play with.
