My Mission:

The objective of my PE program is to help students adopt a healthy lifestyle through games, activities, and exercises.


What are we doing in P.E.?   Welcome to PE!  The year is almost over!  Locker Cleanouts will be Friday May 18. Bring something to put your belongings in. Sports reports for make-up work will be due by Wednesday May 23. These last couple weeks, we will be offering a variety of activities from each Coach.  You may choose any activity offered but stay in that activity the entire class period.  Activities may change daily.

P.E. News:  Please be prepared to dress out every day in your PE clothes (shorts & shirt) and have the appropriate shoes (sneakers: tennis/basketball shoes, cross trainers, running shoes).  Stay hydrated.  Drink enough fluids today to prepare yourself for tomorrow.

Other P.E. Information:

All Students will receive a Guidelines handout and Health form for P.E. via the link above. We will go over the information during class, but students are to read the information with a parent and complete the form online.  If a student needs a "take home" copy of the Guidelines, one will be provided.  The student is to take it home and read it with their parents. Students will also receive a Health form to take home if they need one. Please have a parent sign the form and return it to Coach Haldane. Students must turn in the Health Form either via the link above or returning the "take home" copy to Coach Haldane to participate in P.E. Students are required to dress out daily in the LHMS P.E. Uniform or approved alternate uniform (solid black athletic shorts & plain grey t-shirt - no logos). The uniform cost is $16.00 ($6.00/shirt, $10.00/shorts).

Students, take your uniforms home at the end of the week for laundering.

Cold Weather Days: Students may wear sweat pants/sweat shirts, warm-ups and/or jackets over their PE uniform. They may not wear their school clothing. Please dress appropriately for these days.

Make Up Work: If you are absent or unable to participate due to illness/injury, you may write a 1 page sports report for each day. The report is to be handwritten, top to bottom, front side only, and written in your own words.  If you are currently playing a sport, write about your last game/event.  If you are not involved in sports then watch a sporting game/event and write about it.  You can also write about what happened in the PE game you played in.  Do not copy an article from a magazine, book, newspaper, internet, etc. Changing words from an article someone else wrote, is not putting it in your own words! Do not write about the history of a sport, the rules of a sport, or about an athlete or team.

 


 

 







 

What about these teams? These are football teams (current and past) from different professional leagues that called Tampa Bay and Orlando their homes. The Buccaneers:  From "Bucco Bruce" to "Captain Fear".  Creamsicle Orange to Pewter & Red.  The Bucs went from worst - 0-26 in their first year+, to First - Super Bowl 37 Champions!  "Bandit Ball" was exciting with Coach Steve Spurrier. Besides the Tampa Bay Bandits, the USFL (United States Football League) also fielded a team in Orlando (The Renegades). The Tampa Bay Storm are 5 Time Arena Champs and the Orlando Predators are 2 Time Champs. Catch the War on I-4.  The World League came to Orlando and brought the Thunder. And finally, The Rage came to Orlando to play in the XFL (or the WWE on grass). Short lived, but exciting. The Thunderbolts lit up the AIFA (American Indoor Football Association) inside the Lakeland Center - 2007 Champions! From 2009-10 the Florida Tuskers played in the United Football League (UFL), calling Orlando their home. They had an undefeated Inaugural regular season in 2009, losing the Championship Game in overtime. In 2010 they again lost in the Championship Game.  In 2012 the Lakeland Raiders made their debut in the Ultimate Indoor Football League.  In 2014 they became the Florida Marine Raiders and played in the Xtreme Indoor Football League, winning X-Bowl I. The team has now folded, but indoor football returns in 2016 with the Central Florida Jaguars of the American Indoor Football League.  Good luck Jags.

  



The Magic and Sonics?

I lived in Seattle when the Supersonics won it all in 1979.  They no longer exist,  but I was here when The Magic came to Orlando. Hopefully, the Magic will win a title too.  The Lakeland Magic is the G-League team of the Orlando Magic.  A playoff team in their first year in Lakeland.  Way to go Lakeland Magic!




Buffalo Sabres (2011 - Pres)

Hockey? Let's Go Lightning! 2004 Stanley Cup Champs!!! I saw The Cup; even touched it! I lived in Buffalo long before the Lightning existed, so me and the Sabres go way back. No titles, but still love 'em.




    



Who are these guys?? Lakeland has had 3 professional hockey teams since the early 1990's (The Ice Warriors, The Prowlers, and The Loggerheads). The Orlando Solar Bears were IHL (International Hockey League) Champs, but the league is now folded.  Orlando was awarded an ECHL (East Coast Hockey League) team in 2011, and they were named the Solar Bears. The Tallahassee Tigersharks provided a lot of enjoyment during my college years at FSU. I moved away, and so have they.


 

 
 
Anyone heard of Pele? Probably not, but I remember watching him play. Many consider him the best ever, including me. He played 3 years for the N.Y. Cosmos - 5 Time NASL Champs. In Tampa Bay though, the biggest name was Rodney Marsh of the Rowdies. They were champs in 1975. Sadly, the North American Soccer League (NASL) folded after the 1984 season. The NASL returned as a new league in 2011 bringing back the return of the N.Y. Cosmos (2013 & 2015 Champions, and now considered 7-time Champions) and Tampa Bay Rowdies (2012 Champions) as well. Tampa Bay had returned briefly as FC Tampa Bay in the USSF D-2 Pro League but then joined the NASL.  Tampa Bay also fielded an MLS (Major League Soccer) team, but The Mutiny, starring Carlos Valderrama and others folded.  Too bad.  They were an exciting team to watch!  Welcome Orlando City Soccer.  Good luck.

 
 
 

      Lakeland Flying Tigers (2007 - Pres)

 
 
Baseball:  In 1993, Florida finally got a team - The Florida Marlins (now called the Miami Marlins). Thank you for 2 World Series Championships. Now let's get the Devil Rays (now just the Rays) one!! 2008 American League Champions! And I Love the DOME! Nothing better than baseball, hot dogs, and A/C inside on a hot or rainy day in St. Pete (and No Rain Delays!) Also, don't forget to support your local minor league team, whether you live in Lakeland (now called the Flying Tigers, but they'll always be the Tigers to me) or Buffalo, or wherever.





If you've never watched or played Lacrosse, you're missing out. I love the Buffalo Bandits - 4 Time Champions! Congratulations 2008 National Lacrosse League Champions!! Go Bandits!  You can catch local lacrosse by supporting Florida Southern College.  Their Inaugural Season was in 2009 and they are exciting to watch.  Go Mocs!!!
