Physical Education


Course Descriptions


GRADE: 9 - 12 (Two years required)

At Capuchino, Physical Education classes are vigorous, inclusive and give students many opportunities to set goals and work to achieve them. Mustangs live healthy and active lifestyles. Students are expected to dress in a P.E. uniform daily (green on top, black on the bottom - activewear/no jeans), bring a pen/pencil and their P.E. portfolio (which they will receive near the start of the school year) and participate in a variety of activities such as cardiovascular and strength training exercises, team sports, individual or dual sports, aquatics, dance, and more. Please check out the links below and utilize School Loop to communicate with your child's physical education teacher.

Weight Training

The weightlifting class was designed to provide students with the knowledge needed for strength and fitness training. Students will understand the importance of setting goals for personal improvement and achievement, and will leave the class with a lifelong understanding of how to maintain adequate physical fitness for a healthy lifestyle.


Instructional Philosophy:
Students will be provided with the necessary training on each specific exercise so that training can be executed safely. Students are encouraged to remain positive with themselves, as well as with other students in order to maintain a good training atmosphere. It is important to realize that everyone begins this course, and progresses through this course at his own rate, as they reach their own individual goals. Safety is always given the first priority in this class.


Class Objectives:

- The students will improve their muscle strength and endurance through weight training exercises.

- The students will gain knowledge of equipment and safety procedures with free weights and machine weights.

- The students will recognize and identify the benefits of regular physical activity and see first hand the effects on themselves through class participation.

- The students will develop a weight-training program using training principles.
