And many - 35 % (27 % of the young men and 48 % of the girl) would like to be engaged in swimming, if there were suitable conditions. The popularity of swimming is explained by the increased interest of the majority of the students to this kind of sports, as there are a lot of rivers, lakes and ponds in the Perm region, and it is not enough of swimming pools, especially in high schools. The popularity of such kinds of sports, as aerobics, the sports games, tourism is very high. Having entered the high school, the young people usually stop to be engaged in sports actively.
