P.E. Course Descriptions
Regular repeating sports classes that meet at a regular day and time as part of a year-long series. Sports vary each month.

This international sport has been modified for the EMH Sports PE program. The game is played with two teams. The team with the ball passes to other team members until one is able to throw it into the goal of the other team. There will be different size balls for age appropriate groups and skills will focus on throwing, catching and making goals. The rules and regulations will be discussed before each class session.

Students will participate in fun contests such as steal the flag, punt, pass and kick. Introduction to football fundamentals along with position specific responsibilities will be emphasized. PE football is a non-contact class, so no football equipment is needed. Flag football games will be played daily to reinforce lessons taught.
Kickball is a very simple sport and is popular with our students. A large rubber ball is used for making contact with the runner either by tagging or throwing below the waist. The two teams will run the bases at the beginning of the class to choose which team will kick first.
Nerf Dodgeball is one of our most popular classes. This is a great cardio sport because of the jumping and dodging. The game also improves hand and eye coordination and quickness.
The balls used in this sport are made of a spongy and light plastic material and pose no problem when coming into contact with the students. These lighter weight balls move slower through the air and are easier to dodge.
We add several different sizes of ball and variations on the rules to keep it interesting and fun. The rules and regulations of the games will be discussed before each class.
