Ok, so this is going to sound like a really wierd question, actually I have a few... I tried the search tool, but nothing came up that answered my question exactly, so here goes: 1) Does the army have its own swimming club? Like with training sessions and stuff or would I have to join one near to the barracks and train independantly? 2) I've heard that the Basic Training periods are really really busy, would I have the time (and energy) to go swimming training as well as doing the basic training or would I have to give swimming up temporarily, while doing the Basic Training? 3) Do you have to become a PT trainer/coach to 'specialise' in a sport? Like if you were going to the Olympics or something (not ging to happen for me, just an example!), and had to train loads leading up to it, would the army give you the time off, or would you have to train on top of all the stuff you are expected to do? I know, I'm asking alot, but I would be very happy if anyone could answer any of my questions, or even point me in the direction of who could. Thanks in advance!
