Recommended Prior Learning

No prior learning required but motivation to push and improve yourself is an advantage.

The goal of the Sport and Fitness option subject is to work with students who are motivated and keen to develop as athletes and as people. We use the vehicle of fitness to teach values such as resilience and perseverance. We spend some time learning about and participating in some new sports but our main drive is around getting more physically fit. I will introduce you to training methods and teach you how to get the best out of your body. Some examples of things we have done in the past are.

-Gym training sessions

-Fitness circuits

-Interval training sessions
