High school ninth graders are required to pass a one semester (half credit) course in Lifetime Fitness to graduate. Physical Education is an elective for grades 10-12 with weight training and conditioning being a popular course.
This course is designed to help students apply health-related fitness concepts to lifelong physical education activities. Students will set short and long-term fitness goals based on physiological assessments. Individual, dual, and team activities will provide students opportunities to meet their individual fitness goals. Periodic assessments will assist students with activity selection and provide feedback for goal attainment. This course should be taken sequentially with Health Education in grade 9.
