I haven't heard if WHA Medical is able to come to our facility this year.  Due to this, you may have to get physicals at your family physician.  All players must have physicals before they are allowed to play.


Welcome to the Desert Oasis Physical Education webpage.
I am very excited about the new year.This will be my 3rd year as the Desert Oasis physical education teacher.I have 9 years of previous teaching experience in grades K-8. I have also coached baseball and soccer at both the high school and jr. high levels, along with football and volleyball at the jr. high level. Fitness 1When I'm not teaching or coaching, I enjoy hiking, mountain biking and spending time with my wife and kids. We are always doing some type of outdoor activity.I look forward to working with Desert Oasis students, and towards the continuation of a quality physical education program.
Physical Education helps students develop the knowledge, fitness levels, motor skills, and personal and social skills to obtain the ultimate goal of a lifetime of physical activity and health. Each student should be exposed to a healthful lifestyle that includes consistent exercise and healthy habits. The physical education program will introduce sports skills and basic game play for all major sports. Cooperative skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork will be emphasized. Each lesson is composed so that motor skills as well as cognitive skills are enhanced. Becoming a lifelong learner in physical education is the programs main goal. The students focus on skill development with activities in partnerships and in games with small groups that allow everyone to participate.
Skill development is measured through continued observation and skill tests. Each student is encouraged to develop at their own pace. The department stresses non-competitive behavior and sportsmanship throughout the skill development. Encouragement and supportof the students is a priority throughout the curriculum. With the ability to work with each other, students can have an excellent experience in class.
The Physical Education curriculum is aligned with the State of Arizona Physical Education Standards. Your child will learn the importance of fitness and will be involved in regular vigorous activity. They will learn to appreciate movement and physical activity as an enjoyable experience.

Some benefits of Physical activity are:
Reduces the risk of heart disease.
