- Apply physical, biological, social, and behavioral principles to the planning, development, evaluation of physical and sporting activity programs.
Objectives (Learning outcomes)
- 01To analyze the sport and physical practice context of a subject or group of subjects, being able to organize the necessary elements for this practice is carried out according to a master plan
- 02To learn, apply and develop all training and competition periodization structures and models on individual athletes and sports teams.

Methodology and grading
- Case studies: Learning through the analysis of actual or simulated cases in order to interpret and resolve them by employing various alternative solution procedures.
- Cooperative learning: Develop active learning through cooperative working strategies among students and promote shared responsibility to reach group goals.
- Lecture: Pass on knowledge and activate cognitive processes in students, encouraging their participation.
- Problem-based learning: Develop active learning strategies through problem solving that promote thinking, experimentation, and decision making in the student.
- Project-based learning: Realization of a project to solve a problem, applying acquired learning and promoting abilities related to planning, design, performing activities, and reaching conclusions.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
- The subject assessment will be divided into two theoretical and practical sections. The first section will be evaluated by a test of 50 multiple choice questions (5 options). Each test failure remains a quarter of the correct answer value . This section will be overcome with a mark of 5 points.
The second section will be evaluated by testing three developmentopen questions , in which the student must answer case problems. This test is passed with a score of 5 out of 10.
When the student passes both sections will enter the average of its notes (paragraph 1 more paragraph 2) to obtain a final mark of the subject.
In addition, those students who choose to develop a planning and periodization project (in the health or sport area), will improve their scores ratings up to 20%
