2.1.Course objectives
To provide students with the basic theoretical knowledge and practical skills about the moving structures, teaching and training methods, and to establish criteria for the acquisition level quality evaluation of sailing techniques. To point out the application values of enumerated sports in the field of physical education, physical recreation and agonistics.
2.2.Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course
Completed Water Sports course.
2.3.Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
Based on acquired knowledge from the Kinesiological analysis course students will be able to successfully demonstrate, define, and analyze particular sailing techniques in particular sailing class and to competently evaluate the acquisition level of a certain sailing technique - sailing class.
2.4.Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)
Within the elective module Sailing, by completing the Kinesiological analysis course, students will acquire knowledge on:
- basic kinesiological and anthropological characteristics;
- structure analysis of a particular sailing class (singlehanded, doublehanded and multihanded);
- biomechanical analysis of sailing in particular sailing classes
- functional analysis of sailing in particular sailing classes
- anatomical analysis of sailing in particular sailing classes
- technical and tactical demands of sailing in different sailing classes
