Plan group water-based exercise sessions (Release 1)
This unit, SISFFIT038 – Plan group water-based exercise sessions, describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to plan group water-based exercise sessions designed for participation by mixed ability groups, or by groups that predominately comprise a particular profile, for example, older people. It requires the ability to account for the participation of individuals from specific population groups and of diverse abilities, and allow for modifications that can be made during instruction.
The elements and performance criteria include:
- Identify needs and expectations of diverse participants.
1.1. Identify diverse reasons and goals for participation in group water-based exercise sessions and evaluate how these can be accommodated in a group setting.
1.2. Identify characteristics, abilities and special needs of participants from specific population groups and determine ways that session inclusions can address needs.
1.3. Identify common injury and medical barriers for participation in group water-based exercise sessions and determine how session inclusions can be modified.
- Plan group water-based exercise sessions.
2.1. Determine type of session and fitness goals to be targeted.
2.2. Identify participant characteristics, abilities and fitness levels and determine group profile.
2.3. Select exercises, training techniques and exercise equipment that target identified fitness goals and that are suited to group profile.
2.4. Plan sessions that incorporate volume and intensity and load of exercises appropriate to group profile.
2.5. Plan for exercise phases and volume within session duration.
2.6. Determine ways that exercise type and intensity and load can be modified during instruction to meet individual participant abilities and needs.
2.7. Document session plans according to organisational format.
- Review and modify future sessions.
3.1. Collate and review feedback provided by participants and instructors.
