The Physical Education class is against the wishes of Hetty, who sees the class as taking away other more important academically inclined subjects, and Sara, who doesn't know how to skate. Meanwhile, sawmill owner, Archie Gillis, is holding tryouts for his hockey team, the Avonlea Avengers.

Lots going on in this episode. Mr & Mrs Alec King are expecting their 4th child. They have 2 girls and a boy. The last time she had a baby was 9 years ago and is fearful. Mrs King is near giving birth.
The head of the education dept Miss Stacey talks to Hetty the teacher and wants to have physical education for the kids starting with 2 soccer teams including schoolmates against each other that have mixed teams of girls and boys.
A business man wants to cut down a lot of trees which residents don't want to have cut. He has a soccer team. He makes a bet that his team can beat the school team and if his team wins he can cut any trees he wants.
Alec King is the soccer coach for the town team. He ends up getting a sprained back while his wife goes into labor. There are a lot of challenges in this episode and town people betting on different teams.
It is a good episode funny, tense and many blessings.
