They apply basic biomechanical principles, tactical skills and strategies in modified sports and activities and demonstrate competency in applying throwing, striking and hand-and-foot dribbling specialized skills. They understand the importance of rules and safety procedures and can define the FITT Principle as it relates to physical fitness development. Students plan ways to do physical activity as part of their daily routine.
