Subject Description

Integrated Learning (Sports Studies) requires students to apply their knowledge and skills to sporting and physical activity practicals and theory tasks, which lead to a specific purpose, product, or outcome. The subject draws links between aspects of students’ lives, physical activity, sport and the community.
Integrated Learning facilitates collaboration and teamwork. Students learn to plan and organise activities, and to develop their understanding of, and empathy with, others.
This course is designed for students who have a keen interest in sport, physical activity, coaching and umpiring. Students will negotiate two practical activities, organise and run a small sided tournament, design and implement a coaching program, undertake an entry level officiating course and reflect upon their learning throughout the course.
