KINES 046 Squash I (1-1.5)

Kinesiology 046 is a course designed to provide students with the motor skills and cognitive understanding necessary to successfully compete in the game of squash. Initial emphasis will center around three areas: 1) developing racquet skills and mechanics; 2) acquiring an understanding of the rules and regulations of the game; and, 3) developing appropriate movement skills. Subsequent effort will focus on applying the above to live-game situations. Here, students will learn to recognize, comprehend, and develop on-court strategies, and will learn to employ these tactics in game play.

Students will emerge from this course with beginning-level squash skills and a solid foundation in racquet fundamentals. This will serve as a "connector" to, not only advanced levels of squash, but other forms of racquet play as well. In turn, this will facilitate the discovery and appreciation of the significant lifetime benefits offered by all racquet sports.

Students will be evaluated by (but not limited to) a combination of techniques: written examinations, skills testing, performance standards, and subjective evaluation of skill level.
