What is Teaching Indoor Team Sports?
Studies have shown that exercise can benefit everyone in various ways, physically, mentally, and even creatively. By offering a quality curriculum with a spark of enthusiasm, you can kindle an interest in almost any sport! In this course, we will be focusing on volleyball, basketball and badminton. This online PE course will provide information and structure required to build quality indoor team sports units to encourage participation in regular physical activity for lifelong fitness.
Who should enroll in the Teaching Indoor Team Sports course?
Physical education teachers many times have the overwhelming task of not only teaching physical education but coaching one to three sports as well. Unfortunately, many districts are more concerned about the results a handful of athletes produce rather than the masses of non-athletic students who pass through the gymnasium doors each day. Physical educators, grades K-12, who want to make a critical impact on both athletes and non-athletes alike should consider taking this online PD course.
