Swimming Lessons Glossary – Lap





Can you explain what Lap means please?


Lap :One round-trip swim down the pool (two lengths). In a short course pool, one lap is either 50 yards or 50 meters.


We hope you find this glossary of some help in understanding the term Lap. Please use our glossary again for more swimming phrases like Lap. We hope you find them equally helpful.


Well you had no trouble with Lap. It was fairly easy so how about Stop-stop-switch (“SSS”)




We can accommodate you (and your partner) if you wish to take a residential swimming course, week-end, weekdays or full week. One-to-one lessons at a really attractive price.
