Sample Program Checksheet:
Physical education majors begin taking classes in their discipline in the freshmen year. When they successfully complete student teaching they are eligible to apply for NYS certification in physical education (K-12). A coaching component is built into the program as well. All majors are required to attend and participate in professional conferences, and they will spend over 100 hours in the schools before teaching.
The physical education student will be prepared to meet the unique demands of teaching physical education in New York.
