Skyline 3

Learning Recommendations: Entry level PE class for 10th, 11th, and 12th grades

General Description: Students will choose from two different physical education units every three weeks, for a total of six different units through the semester.

Content: Emphasis is on rules, strategies, skills, and sportsmanship in competitive situations. Students pick their preferred activities from the following options: archery, team sports (tchoukball, volleyball, basketball, floor hockey, ultimate Frisbee), indoor racquet sports (pickleball, badminton), international sports (soccer, Gaelic football, rugby), dance, tennis, introduction to yoga, introduction to weight training, CrossFit, powerlifting. Unit options depend upon student choice and are subject to change. Students will also participate in various cardiovascular activities throughout the semester.

Strategies: This is a choice-based program that is co-taught. Students generally get a choice between a team sport and more of an individual or lifelong activity. There is a lot of success for any type of PE student because there seems to be something for everyone.

Equipment to be provided by Student: Students have the option to either purchase a Skyline Physical Education T-Shirt ($8 for cotton, $10 for performance) from the school or provide their own athletic clothing in the same size, shape, and form as what is offered for purchase. If there is a concern about the cost, please see the ASB bookkeeper or your counselor.
