Course Objectives Developing students, physically, mentally and socially with swimming as a tool, and developing their competitiveness and team spirit through swimming. Seeing sports as a science and realizing that mostly studies in the fields like engineering and architecture are contributing to sports sciences.
Course Description BEB101 is designed for students who has NO swimming skills and/or has fear of water. At the end of the class, it is aimed that the student can execute freestyle (crawl) at least 15m and survive on the water by themselves, without any assistance.
Course Outcomes Upon successful completion of the course, the students should be able to
- demonstrate the basic freestyle (crawl), floating and diving techniques in water by themselves,
- analyze the biomechanics of a swimmer,
- realize the contribution of the other science branches to sports sciences,
- criticize the need of learning swimming.
Pre-requisite(s) BEB101 class has no pre-requisites but the class is designed for non-swimmers and students who has fear of water. The students who you can swim 50m or more without assistance should select BEB102.
