How to Document Homeschool PE Credits

Do homeschool P.E. credits seem elusive to you? Do you wish there was a surefire system to document all P.E. credits? To be sure, homeschool P.E. isn’t the same as a public school P.E. class, but you have the blessing of a wider range of options for P.E. credit as a homeschooler.
PE is just one of the 10 critical courses to study before graduation. Learn about all ten in my free ebook. Click to download: The 10 Essentials for Homeschooling High School

Homeschool PE


It is relatively easy to document these credits as well, just count the hours and have proof of participation. One homeschooler, who's child is playing a sport for P.E. credit asked me this question about documenting it:
What other records should be kept for P.E. if your child is playing a sport? Do you need to keep a schedule, wins or losses, stats, anything like that?

I would encourage you to save a little something to document as proof. As I was thinking about that for our swim team, my kids were given ribbons for participating even though they weren’t awesome swimmers. I just saved their ribbons and that became my documentation. They also gave a certificate of participation at the end and I did keep that in case anybody asked.

Often for things like P.E., they don’t really need proof. One exception might be if your child wants to go to the military or apply for a military academy. Those universities are very particular about certain things and they don’t just want proof of academics; they also want proof of physical fitness. If you play a sport, it’s nice to know if they have a time, their win=loss ratio, the name of the team, the name of the coach etc. so that they can document the physical fitness of your child.

I was told at a recent seminar (for my state) to keep a detailed log for P.E. (specifically for high school credits). For example ... my children do taekwon-do. Other parents attending also had children in martial arts, and we were told to keep a log of all classes they attend (dates, times, location, photos if possible), at home practice (dates, times, some specifics about what they did during the practice time, photos), tournaments competed in (date, location, photo of any medals or trophies received, copies of any certificates received, photos or videos from the events, copies of registration forms for the events), seminars attended (date, location, copy of certificates received, copy of registration form, photos if possible), and the like. We were also told it would be a very good idea to type up a formal statement about the particular activity for the homeschool year and have an official instructor sign the statement.
