SPEED

SPEED (SPORTS PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND ENRICHMENT DEPARTMENT) PROGRAM

GSPEED at Vega combines both the theory and practice of Physical Education curricula from around the world and implements new developments taking place in Physical Education in the 21st century. The application of physical education continues to change for the better as new studies show better practices and teaching approaches for children.

Vega wholeheartedly believes in the importance of skill development. Skills are the foundational element for proper motor development and functional ability within all sports. Enhancing Learners’ skills allows the opportunity to undertake more challenging physical activities and also fulfill the stress put on the body from internal and external forces.

Areas of Focus

  • Develop competence to participate in a wide range of physical activities

  • Promote physical activity for sustained periods of time

  • Engage in competitive sports and activities

  • Promote healthy life choices

We focus on growing skill development, to a full scale game through a multi-stage approach. This above pyramid shows the layout which is followed in a SPEED Class. The last aspect that is not covered in the diagram is a reflection. Children are asked to describe what they did, how they did it, and did they enjoy it every step of the process.
