Marymount's Physical Education courses aim to foster wellness, knowledge, social skills, fair play and fun. The activity-based, sequential program introduces students to team sports, health-related fitness components (focusing on aerobic activity, muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility), healthy choices, and lifetime activities. Through these units, students learn and develop the fundamental skills of different sports, as well as essential principles to live a healthy, active lifestyle. Students will work to master these skills individually and in groups, where sportsmanship and cooperative play are stressed.
