When summer comes, you are probably unwilling to do outdoor activities because the weather is too hot. However, you just might change your mind after reading this article because there is one sport you may not have thought of – swimming.
There are many advantages to going swimming. Swimming keeps you healthy and cool in the heat, but the most important benefit is that you will not get injured doing this exercise. Because you are an FCU student, it’s convenient to go swimming because there is a swimming pool on campus. Also, you should feel motivated to learn because you have to pass a swimming test before you graduate!

There are a number of places you can go to learn how to swim well. You can go to the physical Education class, and the teacher will teach you; or you can go swimming with a friend who has already learned how. After increasing your confidence, you can go to a water park like Yueh-mei to have fun. When you think you are good enough at swimming, you also can go to the beach. However, that’s probably not a good idea because it’s really dangerous. Swimming is a good, healthy sport. Once you overcome your fear of the water, you will have a lot of fun.
It’s not too late to learn how to swim. If you want a sport that will keep you healthy but not injure you, and that will keep you cool in the heat, go to the swimming pool and learn to swim – and enjoy the hot days of summer!
