What do other students think about Sport and Fitness?

In Sport and Fitness, I learnt a lot about the rules, techniques and science-side of how our body works while playing sports, such as basketball, badminton, cricket and volleyball. Each lesson I gained information about these sports and had fun playing them with other students. Trying to be active in all activities helped me learn new skills and improve the skills I already had as I love playing sport. As well, I had the opportunity to demonstrate my coaching skills and get feedback from the teacher to continuously improve.
