Recreation Administration is a 10-unit course designed to teach students leadership, management, and organization skills through the creation and implementation of youth recreational activities. Through instruction via theory, direct instruction, guest lectures, and team building exercises, students will learn how social, emotional, and physical well-being is maintained through participation in a wide variety of recreation activities and sports. Students will learn instructional techniques as well as the specifics of popular community sports. They will design and direct intramural programs during lunch time and after school for the students of Woodcreek High School under direct supervision of the instructor. They will also undergo thorough training and certification in officiating, first aid, and CPR. Recommended students will then be placed into internships in educational settings or with local parks and recreation programs where they will operate more independently with teacher facilitation.
