This study aimed at identifying the impact of immediate and delayed feedback on improving the performance regarding some basic swimming skills in breaststroke. In order to achieve the study objectives, the study was conducted to a sample that consisted of (30) students who were chosen in the intentional way and were divided into two experimental groups; The first group consisted of (15) students, and used the immediate feedback method, while the second group consisted of (15) students, and used the delayed feedback method. The results showed that there are statistically significant differences between the pre and post measurements in favor of the post measurement for the two groups; which indicates that using the immediate and delayed feedback improved the level of skilled performance for the skills of legs and arms movements in the breaststroke. The results also showed that there are statistically significant differences regarding the posttest between the individuals of both immediate and delayed feedback groups in favor of the immediate feedback group regarding the performance level of the arms movements, while there are no statistically significant differences between the two groups regarding the legs movements
