To get the chlorine out of their hair. When you get out and dry off your skin becomes itchy Swimming pools contain many bacterias and are unhealthy for the body.

also as the swimmer i am i take showers because it gets the chlorine out of my hair and off my body. But also because it cools you off and also relaxes u after a hard swim or hard practice. answer: most of the time they do it to get the clorine off them and some just take showers after to make them feel cleaner and good.

After swimming, there will be chlorine on your skin. Many people prefer to shower right after getting out to get the chlorine off of their skin, so that it doesn't dry out their skin.
