A Vision for Fitness

Fitness is an important part of physical education. How fitness is delivered, learned and implemented by the students is a big picture question that we need to address.

Elementary Level: Games and sport with fitness embedded.

Middle to High School: Fitness with sport and games embedded. Fitness is out there and discussed with students as they participate in sports and games. The activities presented are centered on fitness components through game play, muscular endurance, cardio, muscular strength, flexibility,

Cardio Capture the Flag :-)
  • Students learn offense and defense skills
  • Invasion sport similar to football, basketball and lacrosse
  • Cardiovascular game, running
  • Risk taking game
  • Strategic planning
