– SPORTS SCIENCES HIGH SCHOOL –

THE UNDERSTANDING AND PRACTICE OF SPORT WITH ACCESS TO ALL UNIVERSITY FACULTIES

This course gives the right response to the educational requirements of a Scientific High School, also reinforcing the study of mathematics, with increase in the weekly hours, providing a useful preparation for the subsequent access to University courses. It offers the possibility of dedicating more time to sports activities as requested by many adolescents, whether they are already participating in competitions even at a high level, or are simply enthusiasts. The study of the law and economics of sport in the three-year period allows the students to learn about the structure and operation of sports companies and to explore, also in regulatory terms, the world behind a sports event.  The timetable, with duration of lessons in line with regulations, does not exceed 30 hours per week and is spread over five days, also to help students who take part in competitions. The course also provides for the option of personalised teaching to recover lessons that were missed due to training and competitions
