The aim of the paper was to qualify swimming as one form of health security as illustrated by the case of children at a younger school age who attended swimming lessons in School Sports Centre in Kraków (KSOS) over the period 1974-2012. The research material consisted of chronicles and activity reports of School Sports Centre in Krakow over the period 1974-2012.
The primary research method used by the author was the critical analysis of available sources and materials concerning the number of children participating in the training in KSOS and the number of issued “I can swim” badges. From the information gathered it appears that KSOS has exerted a very important
role in respect of swimming as one of forms of health security of children
at a younger school age. Over the period 2005/06 – 2001/12 children
obtained a very high level of health security in respect of swimming.
