Nevada Union’s physical education program is comprised of a freshman core curriculum, upper level activities, and advanced classes. The freshman comprehensive curriculum includes activities such as: team sports (softball, soccer, and kickball), fitness, aquatics, track/field, volleyball, basketball, badminton, and health. The advanced classes offered for 10-12 graders include, football, basketball, weight training, wrestling, baseball, dance, and aerobics. All the advanced classes are taught by teachers with special training and credentials.
Nevada Union also has an adapted physical education program. The credentialed teacher is assisted by peer tutors. All of the challenged students share the facilities and many are mainstreamed into regular programs.
It is strength of the Nevada Union Physical Education Department that many students choose to take physical education beyond the two year requirement. Of the 1800 students enrolled at Nevada Union, over 950 are enrolled in at least one class of physical education. Many students are on a waiting list to get into elective classes.
