Hours & Credits
Value, rules and regulations of swimming, with an emphasis on water safety; practicing various swimming strokes.
This course is designed to improve your swimming skills, or develop them if you have none. It will emphasize water safety, basic scientific principles that apply to efficient swimming, competitive strokes, resting strokes, aesthetic enjoyment of “being” in water, and physical conditioning. The history of swimming will be looked at, as well as some exotic uses of swimming knowledge such as snorkeling and free diving. The objective of this course is to take you from whatever level of swimming skill you currently have to a higher level. This will be measured by assessing your entrylevel skills and noting the skills that you leave the class with, such as your ability to perform the various competitive strokes efficiently.
