What your student will learn in their physical education class

Physical Education & Health

Health Course Objective: Health and Fitness courses combine the topics of Health Education courses (nutrition, stress management, substance abuse prevention, disease prevention, first aid, and so on) with an active fitness component (typically including aerobic activity and fitness circuits) with the intention of conveying the importance of life-long wellness habits.

Strength training- We train students to develop the components of basic to human movement; strength, power, flexibility, speed, agility, footwork, endurance, mental focus and motivation.  We utilize the principle of specificity, and therefore use free weight training as much as possible.  We train movements and thereby train the muscles that produce these movements.  We follow a sequential progression, in order to maximize safety and optimize success, for all movements.

Fitness-This area helps develop muscular strength, burns fat and increases cardiovascular fitness. (P90X, T25, and TABADA activities)

Recreational games- An introduction to individual and team sports including soccer, floor hockey, scooter football, mat ball, cature the flag, softball, flag football, volleyball, basketball as well as other recreational games.

 

Body Mechanics and Strength Conditioning

Course Objective: This course is designed to give students the opportunity to learn weight training concepts and techniques used for obtaining optimal physical fitness.  Students will benefit from comprehensive weight training and cardiorespiratory endurance activities.  Students will learn the basic fundamentals of weight training, strength training, aerobic training and overall fitness training and conditioning.  Course includes both lecture and activity sessions.  Students will be empowered to make wise choices, meet challenges, and develop positive behaviors in fitness, wellness and movement activity for a lifetime.
