It depends on the pool you're in. Swimming 1 lap = swimming 1 length of the pool. Most US high schools have 25 yard pools; whereas international and more competitive pools are a slightly longer 25 meters. Long course pools found at universities and large aquatics centers are often 50 yards/meters; basically 2 laps in one.

That depends how long an individual lap is.

that player will have ran 300 yards and 900 feet

4 laps

If this helps, each lap ( there and back is 50 meters ). 440 yards is 402.336 meters. 402.336 divided by 50 is 8.04 laps. 440 yards = 8.04 laps. ( there and back ) Hope this helps! :D

A lap is technically 2 lengths. And every 2 lengths in 50 yards. Therefore, you would have to swim 10 lengths (or 5 laps) to complete 250 yards.

The correct term is lengths but In a 25 yard pool it would be 240 lengths

A mile is 1760 yards. A lap of a 25 yard pool is 50 yards. So number of laps = 1760/50 = 35.2

since 1 meter is equal to 1.094 yards, then one lap (one direction) in a 25 meter pool is really 27.35 yards. So then 500 yards at 27.35 yards a lap, you would need to complete a little more than 18 and a quarter laps (18.2815 to be more accurate).

There are 36 laps in a 25-yard pool to make a mile. Each lap is 25 yards, and a mile is 1760 yards. So, 1760 yards divided by 25 yards equals 70.4 laps. Since you can't have a fraction of a lap, you would round down to 70 laps, and you would then have swum one mile.
