  • Anatomy and Physiology (bones, muscles, joints, energy systems)
  • Technology in sport
  • Drugs in sport
  • Sports medicine
  • Event organisation

There is also a practical component where students are expected to participate in all activities. Their sports uniform is required with the same rules as applied to PDHPE.
