Phase 2 of the Somerset College Fitness Testing Programme has commenced this term with students in Years 4 to 9. The focus of this phase of testing is to assess balance, flexibility and co-ordination.
In Term One, tests of speed, leg power and endurance were undertaken, which comprised Phase 1 of the programme. All students have now received a certificate of their Phase 1 test results, showing how they scored on each of the tests.
Following Phase 2 testing, students will be notified if they show potential for a particular sport and offered the opportunity to trial in one of the Sports programmes at the College. There will also be fitness and motor skill development programmes put in place to assist students in developing certain aspects of fitness.
This programme aims to promote fit, healthy, active lifestyles in Somerset College students.
