  1. As a physical education teacher and coach I believe that physical education and after school sports should be separate. I have heard of programs where students who participate in varsity athletics are exempted from physical education or personal fitness classes and that may not be beneficial to all of those students. Some athletes who participate in sports that are not as rigorous to the cardiovascular system such as baseball or golf should not get credit for personal fitness courses or PE because they may not be receiving the cardiovascular exercise they need to ensure a healthier lifestyle. Those students while also varsity athletes are not challenged from a fitness standpoint the same as football, track & field and basketball athletes. To give a one size fits all pass such as exempting students who participate in varsity athletics from personal fitness could lead to some students just skirting fitness all together which may not be very beneficial to them in the long term.
