Our class will mainly focus on the mainstream, traditional sports enjoyed in Wisconsin. I hope the students gain enough knowledge of the intricacies of the rules and fluency in playing each sport that they will feel comfortable playing these sports in their neighborhood and in their upcoming high school careers.
We will focus on one sport for two weeks. After a brief warm-up, the students will spend approximately ten minutes practicing an element of the given sport (eg. how to bump in volleyball, how to perform a bounce pass in basketball). The remainder of each period will be devoted to playing the game and getting a good workout.
Students need to have appropriate shoes and attire. A good attitude and an ability to accommodate a variety of skill levels are also required.
We meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the eight period of the day.
