Physical Activity and Sport for All

Instructional classes focus on increasing the level of skill in an activity, understanding the basic principles of movement involved, and applying them in a particular situation. Courses are sectioned according to ability level.

Classes meet for two hours per week. Seasonal sports are limited to a six-week period.

Riding activity courses carry an instructional fee. Contact Cindy Ford, director of the Riding Program, for current fees.

Department of Athletics, Fitness, and Recreation personnel work closely together to provide a well balanced program of recreational and interest group activities. Opportunities for all students to engage in competitive and recreational sport activities are provided within the college community.


Course Listing

Courses are designated 100 level (beginning), 200 level (intermediate), 300 level (advanced). The department expects students to enroll for the appropriate level based on their previous experiences and skills levels; the department reserves the right to make adjustments as needed. Physical activity courses may not be repeated for credit. Students are allowed one credit per level per activity toward graduation. Riding courses carry prerequisites. Courses may be added or deleted as appropriate. Not for liberal arts credit. Courses may not be taken for audit.
