Illness Prevention


During the past few years, a high proportion of swimmers have been ill, particularly during the winter months. Whilst sometimes this is unavoidable, swimmers and coaches should do everything possible to prevent illness and stay healthy all year round, especially during periods of hard training.

The English Institute Of Sport has produced a document that provides strategies for swimmers in order to establish best practices in an attempt to minimise the incidence of illness and infection.
