PE 26B Information


Mary Donahue PE 26B

PE 26B

Most P.E. classes got new names, changing from P.E. to KNES (as in Kinesiology). PE 26B, beginning swimming, became KNES 001B.

De Anza will offer a Saturday section of beginning swimming in shallow or deep water winter quarter 2017.

Almost all De Anza College beginning swim classes are usually taught in 6 or 7 feet deep water, not shallow water so the course lists a 'prerequisite' of passing a 25 yard swim test in deep water. We will not have a deep water swim test for my classes.

(Yes, this beginning swim class is also appropriate for people who can swim well enough to be in water that is deeper than they are tall.)

You do not have to know/remember how to tread water or how to dive but should have some freestyle and backstroke capability.

Information about (PE26B) KNES,001B, the beginning swim class at De Anza College, as well as how to get a locker, how to find the De Anza College swimming pool and more, is at

For beginning swim classes taught by me, you do not have to know/remember how to tread water or how to dive but should have some freestyle and backstroke capability.

This is a great way to learn to swim or relearn to swim, and most quarters I am able to get shallow water in the De Anza pool to teach in so people do not need to pass a deep water swim test to take the class, but if you are afraid of the water you should take Novice swimming instead.
