As we migrate to a new system, certain function/links may not work.
Research shows that only 10% of students are natural athletes that enjoy a physically competitive environment. The New P.E. caters to the other 90% by providing alternative, individual and
non-competitive activities such as skateboarding. Schools districts across the world are embracing this movement in physical education.
Harvard Education Letter on The New P.E.
'It means adding a greater variety of games and activities, especially those for small groups, so that all students will enjoy PE, not just athletes. The best programs, say researchers, emphasize cooperation and fair play while making sure everyone gets an equal chance to participate. Nontraditional sports such as skateboarding, handball, and dance may find a place in the curriculum, particularly if children request them.'
