Where Fitness Meets Fun

By Coach Jo Pickard, PE Teacher, Coach, PE Department Chair

Fitness at Harbor Day has leveled up with the addition of a brand-new gym, field, outdoor courts, and locker rooms! It’s a total experience that's turning our PE routine into something exceptional. Here are some of the exciting things our students get to experience. 

Rock Wall
Our gym feels like a new adventure park! The rock wall adds a level of excitement that turns our gym into a rock-climbing fun zone. We designed the rock wall for everyone. Whether you choose to traverse or use the auto belay system, you are creating your own adventure with climbing holds!

Locker Room
Now, let's talk about the locker room. We have not had a locker room in over three years, and this is not your run-of-the-mill changing space! The students will have electronic locks on their modern-looking lockers, wooden benches for sitting on while changing, and spa-like restrooms. We have thought of everything to make PE time awesome from start to finish.

Outdoor Courts
Have you seen the brand-new outdoor basketball, volleyball, and pickleball courts? Our painted outdoor basketball courts are popular places for our students to play. Whether you're into friendly pickup games or working on making the school team, these courts are a great starting point. We also have added pickleball courts for middle school PE. It’s a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. The court is smaller, the paddles are quicker, and the rallies are non-stop fun. It's a game that's easy to pick up and hard to put down. 

Finally, the volleyball court. Here, students can work on skills like serving and passing and playing games to strengthen those skills. It also allows us to have three volleyball courts to use for PE, ensuring maximum gameplay and maximum fun. Students can embrace the thrill of competition, the joy of teamwork, and the satisfaction of being active.

Outdoor Field
The gym isn’t only four walls; it transitions onto an outdoor turf field. We have a full-size football and soccer field, a 200-meter permanent lined track, and a long jump running pad into a sandpit. From soccer matches to football games and the Blue-Gold Track Meet, our turf field caters to a multitude of sports and recreational pursuits. 

Our school didn't just give us a gym, outdoor courts, and turf field; they gave us a reason to get more excited about PE. HDS, get ready to strengthen your workout game with our amazing PE teachers because the athletic spaces are where fitness and fun meet!
