Recreational swimming occurs when learning swimming and water safety is not the main objective of the activity.  Recreational swimming is often less structured than sessions designed to teach swimming and water safety, and may occur in a wider than usual range of environments.  For this reason, and to provide quality supervision, the requirements vary for recreational swimming at various types of venues.  For swimming sessions designed to teach swimming and water safety see: School Policy and Advisory Guide, Swimming Instruction and Water Safety
