Long Island students take on great outdoors in new physical education programs

The Half Hollow Hills school district is changing the gym class experience by offering alternatives to team sports that educators say are played less frequently in adulthood. Mountain biking, snowshoeing, kayaking and fly fishing are options in gym class alongside volleyball, basketball and soccer. The instruction -- gaining steam on Long Island and in districts across the state -- aims to teach students fitness habits that will stand them in good stead long after high school is over. They spoke about it on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017. (Credit: Newsday / Scott Eidler)
