This course will focus on the physics, physiology, and biomechanics of various modern American sports, and is for students that have an active interest in sports and sports related fields. Students will examine the scientific and theoretical basis common to all sports activities and training methods and use that basis to develop personal plans to optimize their performances in sports and sports related activities. Sport Science is a laboratory-based curriculum rather than a skill based curriculum commonly seen in similar Physical Education courses. Sport Science will form a foundation for further study in health and the health related careers of Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, and in sports related careers such as Coaching and Athletic Training.
