L3 Sport Science

L3SPSC
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs J. McGrath

This course extends the knowledge gained at L2 and focuses on Biophysical and Sociocultural analysis of physical activity. 

The contexts will be the Tough Guy Event, Badminton and Violence in Sport. Students will be expected to take part in school-wide Cross Country, Athletics and Swimming Sports.

Assessment is 100% internal. This means students must be able to complete assessed tasks within a set timeframe. Some electronic submissions will be required. 

There is only 1 standard assessed from practical performance alone. Opportunities for this will be via Badminton or the Tough Guy/Girl Challenge. Students gaining excellence grades will be offered the chance to enter Scholarship assessments.


Course Costs

This Course Fee is compulsory for all students taking L3 SPSC. Printing workbook $35. Travel and entry to the Tough Guy/Girl Challenge, Rotorua Approx $65. Total Approx $100.
This course will be enhanced by attendance at the following activities: Applied SPSC day, Cambridge Veladrome $80. Physical Training day $45.


Required Prior Learning

Entry to L3 is dependent upon passing L2, in particular AS91329 and approval from the HOD Physical Education.  

Students that select 13SPSC cannot select another course involving standards from PE/Sport. 13SPSC is seen as the academic course and students need to take 4 other subjects for University requirements. This would prevent a student selecting (13SPSC and 13OEAS) or (13SPSC and 13SPED) or (13SPSC and 13Elite).
