Goals and Objectives: Provide physical and mental health and wellness for all students, while promoting student participation and engagement through active movement, skill building, positive self-image, personal and social development through physical fitness.

We believe that fitness is essential to maintaining good health and is built through regular participation in aerobic and anaerobic exercise. We emphasize the importance of interpersonal skills such as communication, listening, problem solving, respect, self-confidence, a positive mindset, and relationship building through a variety of competitions, teambuilding games, and cooperative and performance-based activities.
