Students will also have some skills sections throughout this course in which students will focus on learning specific sport-based skills.

Exercise Library

This course includes complimentary access to Carone Learning’s Exercise Library, with pictures, videos, and descriptions of almost 300 exercises. The library is searchable by exercise type, muscle group, or equipment (including resistance bands, weights, exercise balls, or no equipment at all).

Parent and teacher guides available.

Additional Materials

There are no required textbooks or materials for this course. Access to exercise equipment is recommended, but not required. Some optional fitness tracking equipment is available through Carone Learning.

Sports Equipment: Because students will be performing sports skills, there is various sports equipment that would be helpful for each student to have access to—namely a soccer ball, basketball, baseball or softball, baseball glove, baseball bat, and volleyball. However, substitutions can be made. For example, any playground ball can be used for soccer, basketball, and volleyball skills. A whiffle ball and plastic bat or other object can be used for baseball/softball.
