Abstract

Swimming is a sport much favored by many and one needs to have the courage to be able to swim. In swimming lessons in schools, there are still many students who are afraid to swim for fear of drowning and other reasons. The key to being able to swim is being able to float. When one can float, he or she can easily make any swimming movements. Based on observations, a lot of kids want to try to swimming but are hampered by several obstacles, such as fear of drowning and so forth. This makes a child unwilling to swim. This also happens to students who attend classes on swimming pools. Out of the total 82 students in this class, 23 students could not swim and are afraid to carry out activities such as gliding, dipping heads and diving in shallow areas. Based on this background, the research problems are: Is the form of learning to swim using the rope as aid can improve a beginner's ability to swim? The purpose of this research is to improve the learning ability to swim through a learning model using the rope as aid. Based on the results of research and discussion, we can conclude that there is an improvement in the swimming learning process with the help of a rope. Improvement in the learning through the method of swimming with the rope as an aid to the students of the State University of Sriwijaya, Palembang can be seen from their improved learning process and participation. There is a significant improvement in the outcomes in the three learning cycles that have been prepared, namely cycle one, by which the students apply the learning method of floating with rope as aid; cycle two, by the method in which they swim using rope as aid, and cycle three, the method in which they make swimming motions freely without any aid. Change occurs in the application of the swimming method of using the rope as the aid in which students who initially could not swim can eventually swim.
