This course is based on the concept of utilizing the 5 components of fitness as it relates to swimming. Beginning and advanced swimmers will improve cardiorespiratory fitness by swimming pre-determined workouts. An emphasis will be placed on how to train/workout, cardiorespiratory fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, conditioning, proper swimming techniques, and managing weight. Most class periods will be devoted to swimming for fitness but we will also explore other types of water exercises as they relate to swimming. Students will be evaluated through a combination of reading and writing, swimming assessments, discussion boards, journals, activity log, quizzes, and skill demonstrations. Students will be able to demonstrate an improved level of cardiorespiratory fitness, apply weight management concepts to daily living, demonstrate proper swimming techniques, and apply the knowledge to design a personal swimming program.
