Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs N. Marshall

Recommended Prior Learning

• Reasonable attainment at Level 1 NCEA is recommended.
• PED11F an advantage but not essential.

This course leads on from PED11F and offers students the opportunity to develop their Physical Education knowledge as it relates to movement and sport. There will be an opportunity to apply this knowledge in both the theoretical and practical settings through the following topics:
1. Biathlon Training Principles - demonstrate an understanding of how to train effectively, different ways to train, how the body responds and improves with training.
2. Understanding Trampolining Skill Performance - demonstrate an understanding of anatomy (muscles, bones, joints and movement), biomechanics (how the body moves), how we learn new skills and the role the mind plays when performing trampolining skills.
3. Leadership Strategies - develop communication skills, manage self and group, provide motivation and plan back up strategies when planning and implementing activities for our Kimi Ora students.
4. Implement an Event - plan, deliver and reflect on a camp with Kimi Ora students.
5. Practical Assessment - produce a quality performance in biathlon and trampolining.

All assessments are Achievement Standards and internally assessed. A device is required if the student wishes to complete these assessments electronically.

Future Possibilities
Students can continue their study in Physical Education or Outdoor Education at Level 3. They could also move into tertiary study at New Zealand Institute of Sport or Ara Institute of Canterbury and careers within the sport, recreation and fitness industry. These could include but are not limited to fitness instruction, personal trainer, gym instruction, after school and holiday programmes, coaching and Armed forces.
