VIP Workshop Highlights

The VIP Physical Education PE workshop is designed to provide "next level" professional development for K-8 Physical Education Specialists, Recreational Professionals, and After School Program Leaders. The full-day event will focus in on several fun and fast-moving activities and movement experiences that are ideal for large group elementary or middle school students. This hands-on workshop offers a stimulating assortment of action-packed, educational games and ideas that not only focus on maximum participation and involvement, but will include methods to intrigue, engage, and motivate your students for years to come. The activities presented are energy-boosting, non-conventional and students will absolutely love them!!! 




The VIP Physical Education workshop is "standards-based" and aligns with SHAPE America’s current grade level outcomes. The sessions will include a mix of fitness-based activities/circuits, quick movers/instant activities, manipulative skill development challenges, innovative dance routines, tactical large group games, small group "breakout" games, circus arts, reciprocal teaching tasks, peer assessment, curriculum connections with academic integration into PE,  behavior management techniques, strategies for developing a positive learning environment and much more!!  












During the VIP Physical Education Workshop you will get a look at 21st century physical education and learn….

  • A variety of enjoyable, all-inclusive physical activities, designed to build self-confidence, and promote cooperation, fair play, and responsible participation, while encouraging lifetime fitness pursuits

  • More activities that are action-packed, providing lots of choices and opportunities to challenge your students with countless opportunities for success, no matter the skill level.

  • To move from comfortable, familiar, and functional physical education to movement education instruction that is rich with opportunities to engage children with fun, challenging, and dynamic experiences.

  • A number of fun, movement and skill-based games, provided in a context of realistic situations that promote the skills of communication, cooperation and personal responsibility, while learning to apply critical thinking and problem solving; crucial life-skills that are necessary to allow all of us to think for ourselves and be productive human beings. 

  • To implement games that go beyond exhibiting rote memorization of performing skills to games and activities that present problems, thus requiring students to learn how to brainstorm, collaborate, put into action and evaluate strategies in order to be successful.

  • To take advantage of the opportunities, especially after attending this workshop, to relate the game’s challenges to some real-life situations that students may encounter one day



















Participant involvement and discussion during the individual sessions will be highly encouraged! Visuals and video will be used to enhance learning and all participants will be furnished with links to activity descriptions.
