Level 3 Sport Science
Teacher in Charge: Mr H. Miller
This course of study follows on from the Sport Science courses offered at Levels 1 and 2, using and examining in greater depth the skills acquired previously. There is a strong emphasis on students gaining the skills to take responsibility for the health, fitness and motor skill needs of themselves and others. This involves planning and implementing programmes and critically evaluating their success. Sport Science is an academic subject and students will need good literacy skills and an ability to critically evaluate.
Students will train for and take part in the Tough Guy Challenge, complete the Timber Trail, run a junior rugby tournament and will analyse their level of skill in Beach Volleyball.
