The Tahoma School District has adopted the Sports Education Curriculum K-12 for Physical Education.  This model incorporates many different team sports with each unit lasting approximately 2 - 5 weeks.  The unit length varies depending upon the amount of preparation and planning on the team level.  The typical unit involves learning the rules, skills and strategies for a particular sport, participating in one of several different roles, participating in formal competition and culminates with a final event/festivity.

Each sport unit offers a slightly different role that students can take on.  However, all students (who are not injured) will always find themselves in the role of team player when they are not refereeing.  Additionally, all students will participate as a referee or scorekeeper when their team is not playing.  Occasionally, a student will find him/herself in the role of team captain.
