SMC currently offers credit classes in physical education, athletics, and kinesiology; non-credit courses in health and conditioning (through Emeritus College); and not-for credit courses in recreation and fitness (through Continuing and Community Education).
Compared to most other campuses, SMC is deficient in field space. The Physical Education program lacks outdoor facilities available at other campuses, including a baseball field, a softball field, and a practice field for football, a soccer field, outdoor volleyball courts, and outdoor basketball courts. The District rents field space in order to offer some of these programs; however, there is insufficient field space in Santa Monica.
This project provides for field improvements and for the retrofit of existing District fields and athletic facilities or other fields available to the District for year-round usage. The first renovation was the John Adams Middle School Field. The College, School District, City and community groups share this field. The second field project is the colleges’ Corsair Field. All fields will be made available for community use when not in instructional use.
