Training for the Athlete (Standard)

Credits: 1

This course is designed to enhance athletes’ agility, physical control, coordination, flexibility, and sense of timing. The course focuses on proper and safe body alignment while it develops core strength. Classes are designed to include sport-specific features for in-season training. The class also provides hardy and essential training for athletes in the off-season. This is not a dance class; it is a class for athletes making use of dance training for complementary cross-training purposes. The course allows students to gain valuable skills to improve their flexibility, range of motion, balance control, speed and agility. Completion of one credit of Training for the Athlete results in the waiver of one credit of physical education, but may not be substituted for Introduction to Physical Education.
