About this Unit
This unit examines efficient human movement principles. An understanding of the principles of efficient movement and how they apply to performance is examined through a range of movement tasks required for track and field athletics and aquatics. Laboratory activities will focus upon the basic movement tasks of throwing, jumping, balancing, striking, running, buoyancy and rotary activities. An examination of the instruments used in efficient movement analysis is undertaken. A compulsory requirement of this unit is for students to successfully demonstrate competencies and to undertake and gain the RLSSA’s Bronze Medallion award. Students who are not strong swimmers are encouraged to gain swim experience and coaching from outside agencies through the semester, so that they will be in a position to successfully undertake the theory and practical tests associated with the RLSSA’s Bronze Medallion award. Students will also be given the opportunity to obtain the SLSA’s Surf Rescue award. These components will be completed in the student’s own time and at their own expense and will be additional requirements to the formal lecture and teaching program for the unit.
