The purpose of this article is to provide support for middle school physical education programs that meet the developmental needs of students while providing for student choice. With its health and physical education program called Creating Healthy Active Minds for Personal Success (CHAMPS), Moscow Middle School is striving to cultivate student success by enhancing fitness and improving physical literacy, as well as developing social and emotional skills through a variety of activities, sports and health opportunities. This article describes how three middle school physical education teachers worked together to develop a choice-based physical education curriculum that integrates nutrition, health-related fitness, activity and skill development, and provides a variety of activities in which students participate during the school day and can also be accessed in the community.
