has the potential to affect how a person will feel every moment of everyday
for the rest of his or her life"

  2. With skill acquisition and playing "team sports", students will develop greater interest in doing out of school activities that can lead to a healthier life style. Students will also be aware of their relationship between being active and physical fitness.
  3. Students will realize the importance of teamwork; they will demonstrate cooperative skills in both competitive and non-competitive group activities.
  4. Students will be responsible for a safe and healthy environment. They will follow all safety rules in use of equipment and physical surroundings.
