Students participate in activities designed to help them understand and value physical fitness and its contribution toward a healthy lifestyle. Students receive sequential instruction in a wide variety of team and individual activities giving each student an opportunity to excel. Classes are co-educational.
From the time they enter sixth grade, through the end of eighth grade, students rotate through eighteen units. Specific skills are introduced, reviewed, and mastered in the following sports: basketball, field hockey, flag football, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. Students who play after school sports enjoy strengthening their leadership skills while peer coaching during that specific unit.
Individual activities requiring specific skills and an individual effort include self defense, square dancing, swimming, and the fitness unit. Non-traditional courses include cricket, cooperative games, the ropes course, fishing, speed ball and gymnastics. In the multicultural games unit, students research games or sports from around the world, write a brief report, and make group presentations.
