How To Get PE Credit

Before the season begins, speak with your curriculum principal about applying for "credit by choice." You will complete the necessary paperwork and bring with you the first day of practice. The coaches will let you know how to proceed from there.

 

What Do I Need To Bring?

Bring a water bottle, wear athletic clothing (dress for the sport you're playing) and bring your enthusiasm to learn a challenging fun sport.
