Kinesiology is an exciting part of the Health and Physical Education curriculum. The course prepares students for university and college programs in Physical Education, Kinesiology, Sports and Recreation programs, Nursing, Health Sciences etc. It is also a great course for students interested in learning about the theoritcal aspects of health and wellness.  This course focuses on the study of human movement and on the systems, factors, and principles involved in human development. Students will learn about the effects of physical activity on health and performance, the progress of physical activity and sports, and different types of training and their effect on performance. This course will also leave you amazed at how we are fearfully and wonderfully made by our loving Father in Heaven. Once again looking forward to an exciting semester.
