Sports Performance

Highland Middle School Sports Performance/Athletic Class

The pedagogical practice of a complete body workout, along with cardiovascular endurance, improved quickness, speed, agility, and strength. This could consist of an exercise routine based on strengthening, a core workout, an aerobic activity such as running or jump rope and an extensive weight program developed for each student. This will give students the knowledge they need for a lifetime of fitness. Instruction provided and participation will enhance learning for future uses and give each student the proof of accomplishment for their hard work. Daily improvement proves positive for future work.

Mission
To work together safely as a team during our weight training class, to become healthy and strong. We will learn to lift weights, complete a full body workout, and improve cardiovascular endurance by listening and performing with help from my peers and my teacher.

Learning goal
This year all of Highland sports performance students (100%) will demonstrate improvement in many weight training areas and proficiency in cardiovascular endurance as measured by our skill assessment that we will do every nine weeks during the school year.

Sequence of events
Cover the rules and regulations of sports performance in detail, thoroughly discussing the expectations of the class.
