Evaluation will be carried out in accordance with the Douglas College Evaluation Policy. The instructor will present a written course outline with specific evaluation criteria at the beginning of the semester. Evaluation will be based on the following:
Upon completion of the course, the successful student will be able to:
- Describe the functions of the neuromuscular system, energy systems, cardiovascular system, respiratory system and hormonal regulation in physical activity and training.
- Describe the interrelationships of the neuromuscular system, energy systems, cardiovascular system, respiratory system and hormonal regulation in physical activity and training.
- Describe the acute sport physiological responses of the body to physical activity.
- Describe the sport physiological adaptations of the body systems to training.
- Administer fitness assessment protocols.
- Interpret fitness assessment data.
Consult the Douglas College Bookstore for the latest required textbooks and materials. Example textbooks and materials may include:
Wilmore, J. and Costill, D. (Current Edition) Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Champaign, Ill.: Human Kinetics Publishers.
