Want to play outdoors and earn college credit? The University of Alaska Southeast-Sitka Campus is offering a one-credit outdoor recreation class during the Fall 2012 term.
This class, PE-103-T11, will be taught by certified health and PE instructor (and Sitka High School graduate) Ashley Norman. The class meets every Saturday from Sept. 1 through Dec. 15 at times and locations TBA. There is a $173 cost for the class, which earns one college credit.
Students of all fitness levels are encouraged to take the class, which is designed to build an appreciation for the great outdoors through physical activity. It also will give students an adequate background in a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, golf, lawn activities, outdoor survival, water safety and more. Activities will be adapted and, based on student ability, alternative activities will be available.
So far this class has not hit the minimum number of registered students to hold the course this fall, so more students are needed to guarantee it takes place. To learn more, call the UAS-Sitka Campus at 747-7700 or go online to http://www.uas.alaska.edu/sitka/ and click “Register Online.” The Fall 2012 term starts on Aug. 30, so register soon.
