Physical Education Department George Velarde has transformed the school’s traditional physical education program, introducing students to the “New P.E.” Rather than focusing on traditional team sports, his program stresses individual student fitness. He has received numerous accolades for his achievement. George Velarde was recently awarded a Gold Medal by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness in a Sports Spotlight Awards ceremony in Sacramento.
This year Exergame Fitness was invited to participate in his highly publicized “Product Showcase Day” at Sierra Vista Junior High and we decided to bring the iDANCE Wireless Dance and Step System, The NeuroActive BrainBike, Gamercize with FIFA Soccer and Xavix Boxing with Jackie Chan!
Every year George raises money for his school and we can’t tell you just how much this means to his entire community and how he is changing the face of PE. This event jump-starts the Physical Education Department’s two-week fundraiser that culminates into the school’s annual Fitness Expo.
“Our new partnership with Exergame Fitness will allow us to showcase the world’s best Exergaming products to our school and community,” said George Velarde, Sierra Vista High School Education Department chair” says George Velarde
