KINES 024 Introduction to Lifetime Sports (1.5)

Kinesiology 024 is a course divided into three or four units, with each unit designed to give students the opportunity to learn sports that have potential for lifetime participation. These units include (but are not limited) to racquet sports, winter sports, archery, bowling, and golf. Other sports that have lifetime social and wellness values may be offered due to specific location considerations such as facility and faculty expertise.

The Kinesiology 024 format with three or four sports will give students an opportunity to gain a breadth of information and experience that will serve as a "gateway" to learning opportunities in more advanced classes that offer more depth and focus. These units may also stimulate participation in intramural clubs, and recreational play and encourage participation in lifetime activities.

Participating in lifetime sports will help students understand that regular activity has social, emotional, and physical benefits with potential for total well-being and a better quality of life.
