This quarter, students in PE II are focusing on making changes in our lives through frequent physical activity. We decided to step outside of the traditional team sports and focus more on exposing students to different activities that will encourage lifetime fitness changes and introduce them to something new. PE classes are currently working on team handball, a sport that encourages working together to create offensive and defensive strategies.
On the first day of introducing handball, students expressed uncertainty about trying the unfamiliar sport. But after listening to the simple rules and the concept of the game, the sophomores really got into it. They were able to transfer skills from other sports to create successful strategies for handball competition. In the end, many enjoyed learning a new activity and the refreshing change of pace.
