Basketball PE 10/11/12
Basketball PE is a course for those basketball enthusiasts who are looking to develop their individual and team skills in a competitive environment. If you seek a PE course with a greater fitness component, more intense competition, and higher expectations—all with a basketball focus—this is the course for you. (While we will focus on basketball, students can expect to participate in other PE activities throughout the course). Once registered, students must complete and submit an application form (available in the Timberline PE Office) to be considered for a spot. While all are welcome to apply, consideration will be given to those who have displayed dedication to the sport and a positive attitude/work ethic in previous PE courses.
Having fun while being active is the focus of PE 9 and 10. Students can expect to participate in traditional PE activities as well as learning new skills, sports and games. As in all PE courses, working on individual fitness will also be a component of this course. Students can expect to explore various methods of improving or maintaining fitness. A weekly jog is mandatory. Athletic clothing and footwear are required.
Community Recreation 11/12
The goal of Fitness and Recreation is to encourage physical, social and emotional wellness through community-based recreation. In this course, students engage in a variety of recreational activities such as disc-golf, squash, racquetball, wallyball, swimming, pickleball, bocce, table tennis, and others. The activities we do are low impact and easily translate into positive lifelong habits. Most of our sessions take place out in the community; at Beaverlodge Lands, Strathcona Gardens or the Sportsplex. This is a great course for those who want to stretch their legs, get some exercise and do something different every day.
Fields PE 10/11/12
Fields PE is a course for those who are drawn to the outdoors. Rain or shine, we will be out on the field learning skills, working on our fitness, and playing a wide array of outdoor sports and games. As we like to say in the PE Department, "There is no bad weather, just poor clothing choices." If you register for this course, be sure that you have warm, waterproof clothing, cleats, and a full change of clothes every day. Units will include: softball, football, soccer, ultimate Frisbee, lacrosse, and kickball. We will also take advantage of the Sportsplex facilities on occasion.
Body Zen 10/11/12
If you’re looking for an ALL GIRLS class where the focus is on overall wellness, then Body Zen is for you. This course will take place in a non-competitive and non-judgmental environment, where there is no need to feel self-conscious or discouraged by your level of skill or ability. Physical activities will include: yoga, a weekly walk and/or jog, Pilates, video-led exercise programs, as well as other activities the class is interested in exploring. Together we will develop body-mind awareness and the ability to nurture your own well-being.
Co-ed PE 11/12
Want to keep fit and have fun? Students can expect to participate in a variety of team and individual sports in a co-ed setting. Working on individual fitness will also be a component of this course.
Community recreation activities will take place only if funding is available.
Volleyball PE 10/11/12
Volleyball rocks at Timberline! This award winning program is aimed at students with a strong desire to play competitive volleyball.

Other P.E. activities, jump training and individual fitness are included in this course. Gym strip, indoor court shoes, as well as outdoor running shoes are required.
Fitness PE 11/12
Tired of doing only one run per week? Missing out on regular weight-room time? Fitness PE has the solutions you seek. While several sports and games will be offered throughout the course, our primary focus will be fitness. Students will have a chance to train every day, set goals, and track their progress in a focused environment. Key elements of the course will be: cardiovascular/aerobic, anaerobic, flexibility, and muscular strength/endurance. Students will also work through a theory component that will include nutrition, anatomy, injury prevention, and general well-being.
