Home School Physical Education Program
Welcome to the Home School Physical Education Program. This program will provide the physical education portion of a home school curriculum through gym and swim time necessary to help meet the New York State Physical Education requirements. We realize how important the program is to you and your child(ren) and we strive to run a safe, quality, and educational program. Our focus will be to provide the tools and instruction designed to promote lifetime fitness in a positive and fun environment with structured sport skill training and group swim lessons. Each class will focus on a segment of the YMCA's core values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility.
The gymnasium portion of class will have an age-appropriate instructional focus. This portion of the program will cover gross motor development, object control skills, individual and team sports, strength and conditioning, and other lifetime physical activities. The water-based physical activity in the aquatics center will follow our swim lesson curriculum that teaches kids safety and survival skills, including basic swimming skills and strokes. The program dates align with our swim lessons.
