The research is done according to the Scientific and research work plan of Odessa National Maritime Academy on the theme "The technology of swimming skill intensive training and improvement in different age groups" as planned in Ukraine for 2008-2016, Registration card ? 0108U001487.

Theoretical analysis and synthesis of the available publications on the physical education and sport theory and methodology, the availability of specific information on the gender difference data in swimming competitions among young people and adults are presented only occasionally (Ganchar, 2002, 2006, 2006, 2007, 2007).

Although there are some publications on the specifics of women's swimming training, both by home scientists (Korop, Kononenko, 1981; Onopriienko, 1981; Platonov, 2000, 2004; Firsov, 1976), and foreign authors (Bartkowiak, 1995; Colwin, 1994; Costill, 1992; Counsilman, 1994; Giehrl, 1996; Hannula, 2001; Maglischo, 2003; Schramm, 1987; Schubert, 1990; Walter, 1985).
