Sport Science Extra-Curricular Course


Explanation:
AG is Arbeitsgemeinschaft, where pupils can choose courses they are interested in. These take place in the afternoon. They are child-led and the children decide what to do and how. So in a sewing AG, the children would choose what to sew and how. The teacher acts as a guide but they aren’t formal lessons.
In British primary schools they might be called extra-curricular clubs, but as this is on a school report ‘club’ doesn’t seem formal enough.

Sports Biology also would work.
