About an activity that we do habitually

I have a question on this writing challenge

https://french.kwiziq.com/my-languages/french/exercises/judge/8/3366502?response=458725&page=11

I needed to translate this sentence : but my sister goes swimming every Saturday."

I answered 

mais, ma soeœur fait la natation Samedis.

I once learnt (but I am not sure my memory is correct)

faire + activities = the activities you do regularly

aller + nager = occasionally

Am I wrong>?

This question relates to:
French writing exercise "My neighbourhood"

Hi Carine, 

It might be that your sentence was incorrect -

You could say -

Mais,  ma sœur fait de la natation le samedi.

omg i said that and it wasn't the best answer so i felt bad :(

could you also say "fait de la natation chaque samedi", or is it just better as 'le samedi'

Hi Bill,

You can say 'chaque samedi' as featured in the following lesson:

'Tous les samedis', or 'le samedi' are also correct....
