Sports Biomechanics is an introductory course designed to introduce physical educators and coaches to the basic principles of biomechanics and their applications to human movement in sport and exercise. In simplest terms it is described as the physics of sports where the laws of mechanics are applied in order to gain a greater understanding of athletic performance. The course will involve the analysis of effective and efficient movement through a study of mechanical and anatomical principles while addressing national educational standards. The primary goals are to improve performance and prevent injury.

Learning is fun and since I am a big proponent of lifelong learning, the fun never ends. I have over 50-years of learning and teaching fun. Fresno Pacific’s Continuing Education has given me the opportunity to continue to combine my love for both teaching and learning. I set up courses to be project-based, allowing students flexibility in creating the projects to meet their own unique interests and needs. I continue to learn from each student’s creative projects. The goal for course projects is to not only gain content knowledge in a fun and practical way but to also provide material immediately usable in current or future classroom settings. I welcome you to join me in the fun.
