Physical Education

Goals

Our goal of dedicated and professional instructors and staff is to provide students the physical education instruction that:

  • Allows students to develop knowledge, skills, and positive attitudes regarding the value and benefits of physical fitness.
  • Promote activities for physical skill improvement, conditioning, lifetime fitness, and social development to the greater PCC community.
  • Offer instruction in courses that allow future employment opportunities (e.g. LG-Lifeguard, WSI-Water Safety Instructor).
  • Provide specific courses for lower division block transfer (e.g. AAOT foundational requirement in Health/Wellness/Fitness & a degree requirement of the AS).
  • Offer several levels of courses where skill and learning progress beyond one term of instruction (e.g. beginning, intermediate, and advanced).
  • Continually assess and update physical education curriculum to ensure the courses are grounded in the current principles of physical education, fitness, and exercise science.
