About the subject

This program has been designed to develop student skill level and theoretical understanding through participation in a variety of practical and theoretical tasks.

Areas of study include minor and major games, fitness, and sport and recreation program facilitation. Students will be required to understand the fundamental principles related to fair play in sport, and the components of sport that will lead to the design and implementation of a sport and recreation program, through practical and theoretical tasks.

Students complete two or three practicals for a 10-credit subject and analysis and explore topics. Topics may include:

  • Sport injuries/sports training
  • Participation in physical activity
  • Fitness leadership
  • Coaching and officiating

Through the issues analysis, students identify and pursue topics of interest. Students analyse issues that are relevant to local, regional, national, or global communities.
