The focus of the YRHS Physical Education Department is on lifelong physical fitness participation and the importance of physical fitness to overall health. At the grade 9 level Phys Ed is a basic exploration of sport and fitness through various activities. Students will also take Health & Career Guidance for one semester. Grade 10 is Wellness which combines Physical Fitness with a focus on personal Wellness. In grade 11 Phys Ed is an elective credit and we offer two seperate courses, High Performance Athletic Training (HPAT) 20 and Phys Ed 20. HPAT is course for those serious about fitness training, students will spend the semester working on a personal fitness regime. Phys Ed 20 will see students exposed to a number of alternative physical activities and outdoor education with the goal of creating lifelong partcipants. In grade 12 students again have a choice between HPAT 30 and Phys Ed 30 with a focus on experiencing Physical Education opportunities available within our community. We have also partnered with Hockey Canada to offer the YRHS Hockey Academy.
