Course - Physical Activity and Sport Studies

Physical Activity and Sports Studies provides students with an opportunity to relish play and develop an attitude of joy as we respond to what God has provided us with. The course engages students with the challenges of how to overcome setbacks in this fallen world and how specific populations have differing needs to engage in healthy, active lifestyles. Studying body systems encourages students to ponder creation and marvel at the handiwork displayed in God’s design. Through being confronted with practical challenges in skill acquisition and coaching units, students can unwrap and develop gifts in which God has provided them, to enrich not only their own lives but the lives of others.

The aim of the Physical Activity and Sport Studies course is to enhance students’ capacity to participate effectively in physical activity and sport, leading to improved quality of life for themselves and others. 

Recreation, physical activity, sport and related health fields provide legitimate career pathways, and this course will provide students with a broad understanding of the multifaceted nature of these fields, while developing skills in organisation, enterprise, leadership and communication, which are important skills in all areas of life – both paid and unpaid. 

During this course, students will develop the ability to: 

  • work collaboratively with others to enhance participation, enjoyment and performance
  • display management and planning skills to achieve personal and group goals
  • perform movement skills with increasing proficiency
  • analyse and appraise information, opinions and observations to inform physical activity and sport decisions.

Content

The content of this course is organised into modules from the following three areas of study:

  • Foundations of physical activity
  • Physical activity and sport in society
  • Enhancing participation and performance.

Learning is completed in both practical and theory experiences. This will be studied as a 200-hour course.

FAQ

Is PASS the same as PDHPE?

In many ways PASS is an extension of the PDHPE course and deals with many similar concepts to that of the PDHPE course. 

How much of the PASS course is practical lessons and how much is theory?

In the same way PDHPE has a 50% split between practical and theory lessons, PASS also has the same split. This equates to roughly two periods of each per week.

Who should choose PASS?
  • If you enjoy PDHPE and have a strong desire to further your knowledge and understanding in the area of physical activity. 
  • Anyone who is considering studying PDHPE in Year 11 and 12.
Who is teaching PASS next year?

A decision on the teacher who will be allocated to PASS has not been decided and will not be made until later this year.
