Rock climbing has the power to positively impact the physical fitness of K-12 students of varying interests, abilities and fitness levels. This webinar will show how this appealing, non-traditional lifetime sport impacts the psychomotor, affective and cognitive learning domains and develops five aspects of physical fitness: strength, muscle endurance, balance, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance. In addition to being part of a quality physical education program, climbing can be included in before- and after-school programming and integrated into classroom lessons, and can involve staff and families.
- Participants will learn how rock climbing aligns with SHAPE America's National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education and contributes to the development of five aspects of physical fitness: strength, muscle endurance, balance, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance.
- Participants will be presented with research that supports rock climbing as a moderate-to-vigorous physical activity.
- Participants will understand how climbing impacts all learning domains: psychomotor, affective and cognitive.
- Participants will discover how climbing can be differentiated for youth of varying ages, abilities and fitness levels.
- Participants will receive examples of how a rock climbing program can help accomplish the goals of a comprehensive school physical activity program (CSPAP).
