A student at Tolland High School has two requirements in Physical Education.  These are Physical Education/Health 9 and Physical Education/Fitness 10.  A student receives one credit per course.  These courses have the same consideration as other academic courses in determining honor roll.  The Physical Education department also offers elective courses for those students who have met their requirements.

 The Physical Education/Fitness 10 classes consist of one quarter of Fitness activities and one quarter of Physical Education.  The quarter of Fitness includes development of a personal fitness program, which is the second graduation requirement in the Physical Education department.  A drug education unit is also taught in each class.

 A variety of Physical Education activities are offered at Tolland High School.  There is a balance between team and individual sports.  It is hoped that the students will continue to participate in some of the activities throughout their lifetime.  Some of the activities offered are:

 Archery                                    Floor Hockey                           Scooter Games
Badminton                                Frisbee                                     Soccer Basketball                                Lacrosse                                  Speedball
