Take a PE class for wellness and fun

At Foothill, we want to help students establish healthy lifestyles that will have long-term benefits — for them, their families and the community. Staying fit physically, mentally and emotionally is part of the mix.

Our Kinesiology Department offers classes that cover the physical fitness part with a variety to choose from for those students who want to take PE classes every quarter while studying at Foothill. Our PE and Dance course listing offers something for everyone, whether your goal is to 

  • relieve stress between classes with yoga or a fun game of ping pong
  • improve your golf or bowling game
  • learn the art of archery in a fun environment with new friends
  • or strengthen and condition your body for a summer backpacking trip

If you want to master a specific activity, such as golf, yoga or archery, we offer course levels as you work on skills.
