Sports Education - Basketball

Level: 10
School code: 11ATB
Year level requirements: Non compulsory


Students may be required to provide details of Basketball experience and interest at a later date if needed.

Subject descriptor:

This course is for students who have a special interest or talent in Basketball.

This course takes a different approach to traditional Physical Education lessons. Students will take the responsibility to run a “season” of Basketball and another competitive sport, where they take on the roles of organisers, coaches, unpires, etc as well as being players. The “season” will consist of PE lessons for a number of weeks. To assist with this process, students will undertake level O courses in Basketball coaching and umpiring through Basketball SA.

Students will develop leadership, interpersonal skills and fitness through their involvement in the course. They may also be eligible to gain some units of competency towards a certificate II in Sport and Recreation.

Although the emphasis of the course is on active participation, there are regular written requirements, which are compulsory to pass the course.
