Sports Studies is a mainly practical course where students study for 19 NCEA Level 1 credits. All assessments are conducted internally. Students will be assessed in their practical performance ability in sports such as Australian Rules Football, Turbo Touch, Basketball, Netball, Ultimate Frisbee and Tennis. Often, professional coaches will work with the SiE students in these disciplines. Students learn to reflect on the factors that affect participation, explain how the effective use of interpersonal skills impact on self and others, design and teach lesson practical lessons and examine the function of the body as it relates to the performance of physical activity, looking specifically at anatomy, biomechanics and physiology. Mid year, students immerse themselves in the integrated unit, Blood, Sweat and Tears. This cross-curricular unit of work enables them to secure 19 NCEA level 1 credits across Physical Education, English, Maths and Science all through an exercise physiology lens.
