The purposes of this research were to understand the physical fitness of elementary school students and to investigate the relationships between different physical fitness indexes of elementary school students and swimming performance. By examining Taoyuan sixth grade students and eliminating the student who did not finish whole swimming process, there were 208 students. We used descriptive statistics to analyze the distribution of each student's physical fitness index and Pearson correlation matrix to understand the relationships between physical fitness indexes and swimming performance. The results showed that, first, comparing students' physical fitness with all elementary school students in Taiwan, all physical fitness indexes were located at the middle range except for boys' sit and reach test. Overall, performance of boys' physical fitness was better than girls' performance. Second, according to the relationship between physical fitness indexes and swimming performance, student's swimming performance had significant and positive correlation with standing jump test (muscular strength) and sit-ups test (muscular endurance). However, student's swimming performance had non-significant correlation with BMI, sit and reach test (flexibility), and 800m run walk test (cardiovascular endurance).
