I contend that there is a logical connection between moral education and physical education. This argument is based on acknowledging the importance of competitive activities in the physical education programme for students to recognize success in whatever physical activity they are learning to perform. I emphasize a return to the root word, com-petitio , to strive together. To strive together, students must respect each other in their mutual quest to better themselves. I propose also that the physical education class provides an arena for practising moral behaviour. I examine the counter-argument that sporting contexts have frequently been arenas for immoral behaviour. I also suggest that the physical education class provides a context for practising moral behaviour which is more conducive to this practice than the contexts provided by other subjects.
