You will undertake studies in Human Movement, including growth and movement development and skill acquisition and in skill activity areas including minor and major games, ball handling, fundamental motor skills, and rhythmic and expressive movement. You will develop skills to support movement competence and confidence such as fundamental movement skills, movement strategies, creatively sequencing different movements, and performing more complicated movement patterns as a foundation for lifelong physical activity participation and performance.
