  3. 4. Formulating Objective <ul><li>Physical and Mental Adjustment to the water…breath control, balance, buoyancy, performance relaxation. </li></ul><ul><li>Stroke Mechanics …synchronization, coordination, survival modification. </li></ul><ul><li>Cardio-Respiratory/Muscular Endurance. </li></ul><ul><li>Basic Proficiency …environment specific survival modules/events. </li></ul><ul><li>Enhanced self-confidence in CONFRONTING elements of Fear, Challenge, and Safe Panic . </li></ul>
  4. 5. PE110-113 Survival Swimming (Redbook Course Description) <ul><li>SCOPE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>… Two tract curricular emphasis: Basic Swimming and Combat/Survival Swimming. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>… Emphasis on military applications of swimming and survival skills to include elements of breath control, buoyancy positions, basic stroke development, and condition-specific aquatic competency. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>… Cadet course placement based on data recorded during annual CBT Plebe Swim Classification referencing the following norms: </li></ul></ul><ul><li>PE110 4:00 </li></ul><ul><li>PE111 3:16-3:59 </li></ul><ul><li>PE112 2:31-3:15 </li></ul><ul><li>PE113 2:30 </li></ul>
