The benefits of swimming for human health cannot be overstated, it can be called the most harmonious and "environmentally friendly" form of exercise.
The positive impact of swimming on the human body is very extensive. It helps to fight overweight, strengthens the heart, prolongs life. Swimming strengthens the musculoskeletal system, the pressure of water makes it possible to unload the spine. Small loads in water normalize breathing, saturate the blood with oxygen. Hence the immunity increases, the work of the circulatory system stabilizes. As a result of swimming, the vital capacity of the lungs increases and the functional capacity of the respiratory system increases.

Advantages of swimming:

    Swimming burns as many calories and fat as jogging, aerobics, or mountaineering, so it may be recommended to combat excess weight. 30-45 minutes a day spent in the pool increase the metabolic rate and promotes the rapid burning of body fat.
    Swimming shapes a lean muscle shape as it engages all major muscle groups.
    Swimming relieves stress, calms, gives the body energy.
    Swimming suits almost everyone, enabling everyone to swim regularly, regardless of swimming training.
    Swimming prevents cardiovascular disease. Regular swimming exercises strengthen the muscles, increase the endurance of the body and prevent cardiovascular disease.
    Exercise in water improves blood circulation in the body, normalizes pressure.
    Without excessive stress on the heart, swimming improves the respiratory system and increases the supply of oxygen to the heart.

The swimming department within the physical education department was established in 1983 after the opening of the swimming pool.
The department annually engages in swimming of about 1500 students of 1-5 courses. The teachers of the department developed and tested original methods of organizing and conducting swimming lessons with students. Students according to the level of swimming training are divided into 4 groups: conditionally "yellow", "green", "blue", "red". Students who are not able to swim are enrolled in yellow groups. Initial swimming lessons with such students are conducted in the training pool. Groups of "greens" are formed of students who are able to swim 25 meters in their own way. Blue groups are students who are physically fit enough to swim 50 meters or more in an original way and possess some of the elements of sports swimming technique. Groups of "reds" consist of students who have a swimming training - they have the technique of swimming in sports ways.
Students of the "green" and "blue" groups study the technique of sports swimming. The Red Group program includes improvements to swimming technique and initial training. A team of NTUU "KPI" swimming team is formed from the students of the group "red".

The department has developed a technique for the rehabilitation of swimmers and their endurance with the use of swimming exercises, which are performed at the PANO level, ie at a heart rate of 140 sk / min. Professor Vykhlyaev Yu. M. developed a technique for conducting classes with blind students in the pool and in the gyms using special technical means for which patents for inventions were obtained.

Sports work is carried out with senior students - members of the national teams of the faculties of swimming faculties for preparation and participation in competitions.
Teachers have developed the technique of initial swimming instruction for adults who are not able to swim, as well as the method of teaching swimming to students of technical universities.
