Is swimming a summer or winter sport?

Swimming is a year round sport. For youth club swimming and professionals, it's basically always going. In high schools, (this could be different depending the state, but i'm not sure) girls high school swim season is in the fall and boys high school season is in the winter. During the year, it's usually short course swimming, and the summer season is long course. Also in the summer is country club swimming, but that's not really competitive swimming in most cases, just a bunch of rich kids who call themselves swimmers and mess around.
