Course Learning Outcomes

Through this course, students will gain the knowledge and application of Core Body Balance swimming. This will be developed through practice and through learning a series of techniques. Student knowledge will be measured through written quiz as well as swim quizzes. Swimmers will also take a pre- and post-skills evaluation in which they will be required to swim 2 widths of front crawl, back crawl, elementary backstroke, sidestroke, breaststroke, one width of butterfly, and tread water for 1 min. I will be assessing whether students are prepared for this intermediate swimming class through this pre-swim assessment. This will also allow for students to measure their improvements at the end of the course through application of course material. By the completion of this course, students will develop the ability to swim effortlessly and effectively, knowing the following basic skills: front and back float, front and back glides, front and back-crawl, elementary backstroke, side stroke, breaststroke, butterfly, treading water, deck dive, use of mask and snorkel, and how to make open and closed turns.
