The instructional Physical Education Program at Williams is an integral part of the student's total educational experience. The program is designed to provide opportunities to acquire fitness and to develop an appreciation and enjoyment of lifetime sports likely to be pursued after graduation.

Eight credits of Physical Education represents one of the requirements for the College degree. There are five physical education units during the year. In the fall academic semester, there are two six-week physical education quarters, Winter Study is another unit, and there are two physical education quarters in the spring academic semester. Four sections meet two times per week in seventy-five-minute periods and two sections meet three times per week in fifty-minute periods.

The following courses are offered sometime during the year. A schedule listing all courses offered is issued to every student before each quarter and Winter Study. Classes may vary according to availability of instructors and interest of students.
