KINES 090 Introduction to Team Sports/Indoor (1-1.5)
Kinesiology 090 is a course that has been designed to give the Penn State student an introduction to a selected indoor team sport such as, but not limited to, basketball, volleyball and/or team handball. The fundamental skills, strategies, and rules will be covered for the selected sport. Successful completion of the course will provide a foundation for participation in intramural activities, recreational activities, and provide a gateway to life long movement.
While Kinesiology 090 will focus on the skills, strategies and rules of a selected team sport, the underlying sub-focus of this course is the development of the social skills required to be a good team member. The commitment to a team sport requires students to encounter a collaborate atmosphere. As the students seek to solve complex movement problems they learn to co-operate to achieve various team goals. The improvement of individual skills is important, however, the successful integration of these individual skills into the team is a valuable life lesson. As the student leaves the university, the lessons learned in this class will prepare him/her for "team " membership in their various areas of professional practice.
Students in Kinesiology 090 will be evaluated by a combination of evaluation techniques which may include, but not be limited to, written reports, skills testing, tournament performance and subject evaluation of "team" work ethics.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
