Physical Education

The TAS Aquatics Department works in conjunction with the Physical Education Department in providing a K-10 curriculum that focuses on water familiarization, fundamental skills, stroke development, safety skills and recreational activities. Lessons take place in a heated 25-meter indoor pool and offer the opportunity for TAS students to learn and develop aquatic skills that suit their ability level.

Extra-curricular Activities
