The purpose of this study is to understand the swimming abilities among the secondary school students in Hong
Kong. A total of 1,752 subjects replied to the survey and it revealed that 46.7% of the secondary students were unable to swim. There are significant differences between observed and expected frequencies for the secondary students who were able and unable to swim in gender and family income but no significant difference were found among school levels. Parental encouragement was the major reason for the secondary students participating in swimming activity. This finding provided the database for the school administrators and health care professionals to better understand the current situation about the swimming abilities among the secondary school students in Hong Kong.
