As his students' self proclaimed "Physical Literacy Coach," Andy's #1 personal and professional goal is to see all of his children and youth excel and achieve their personal life's dreams.  His physical education motto is “Dream, Believe & Achieve!"  Outside of his days (and evenings) as a teacher and coach, Andy lives a very physically active life training for fun "mudder" events, community fun runs and Ironman Triathlons.

He has been with this group for the past 20 years acting in various roles to provide children with pathways to participate in community sports. Andy currently coordinates 28 sporting carnivals throughout the year.*

* In Australian culture, sports carnivals are held to perform competitions in the individual or team disciplines like track and field, swimming or Surf Life Saving. Teams from different clubs or schools gather together for both individual point-score and team score. Often, the carnival is opened by a parade with the teams marching in uniforms and flags over the field of competition.

Michelle Hillier's "Fear to Freedom: Moving YOUR Way!" Keynote
"Fear to Freedom: Moving YOUR Way!" Humans are better when we move: movement awakens, inspires and restores. When people move THEIR way, it can be transformative. Imagine an environment where people are brought together to work, play or create and where they assume that physical movement is a critical component to their individual and mutual success?

Where CONFIDENCE is created, CREATIVITY is nurtured and CONNECTIONS are built. People become accustom to the positivity and “magic” feeling that comes with moving their way and its unique attributes of connecting together on a simple movement that anyBODY can do. Ultimately, it is about taking people of all ages from fear to freedom and the best part is, “you can’t get this wrong!”

Takeaway 1: Importance of actual human CONNECTION to others in a world where social media has taken moved us farther apart in ways. In this session there is no wifi, but the connections are out of this world!
Takeaway 2: Increased self CONFIDENCE and feeling unstoppable after experienced the Groove in the form of movement. Rarely do people move their bodies “their” way and feel safe and successful while doing so - in this experience they will.
Takeaway 3: Ability to use their CREATIVITY in new and meaningful ways. As adults we don’t often nurture this aspect of our humanity and it is so transferable to work, leadership and life.

Kyle Alexander's "Functional Play & Citizenship: A Model for Living Well" in Dance Room 306
"Functional Play & Citizenship: A Model for Living Well"  Kyle Alexander is the Director of Athletics and Physical Education for New Covenant Schools in Virginia and writes: "Over the last few years we have focused on the concept of "Citizenship" in our physical education classes with goal of developing a sense of being a positive as well as productive citizen within our community.  "Citizenship" is  defined in Webster’s  
  • membership in a community
  • the quality of an individual's response to membership in a community
Details: During these last few years we have been sharing the value of good citizenship through the physical education experience with reflection and reinforcement during and after classes. From the small team games to the locker-room, classrooms, larger school community as well as home life to our local community and beyond our students play a role in the progress and enhancement of their community. 
  1. Are physical educators training the citizens and future leaders to thrive in a healthy and functional manner to serve and lead their communities? 
  2. Believe me as much as any other physical educator I want children to be physically fit with the ability to develop lifelong fitness habits. My strength has always been teaching sport skills and games which was ingrained into we physical education majors 30 years ago and I still love to teach sport skills.
  3. However, I like to say kids haven’t changed, but times have changed. One of the reasons youth sports is growing is that parents are looking for a place their children can learn values. 
  4. As physical educators we have the ideal classroom laboratory to teach the values of good citizenship through play.
This year my co-worker Julie and I have implemented what we call “functional play” to allow children to interact in a positive and healthy manner during simple game play. We use the same concepts of “functional fitness” when using the fitness center allowing children play concepts while physically challenging them.

"The 2nd #PhysEd Camp: Personal Learning at It's Best" at the Keynote Stage
"The 2nd #PhysEd Camp: Personal Learning at It's Best" is being offered by Mark Foellmer & Friends. Two years ago, we conducted our first #PhysEd Camp coordinated by the friendly folks from PHYSEDagogy.  Since that time, we have had intense interest in having this return to the Institute... so here it is!
Background:  This #PhysEdCamp is based on the EdCamp model, where participants generate topics and those who are interested in discussing/exploring that topic then gather to do so. As Mark writes: "We would like to present "PhysEdCamp: Personal Learning at It's Best" for the 2019 National PE & School Sport Institute. We, honestly, feel that the absolute best place to do this as the participants will be so engaged  and all have so much to offer each other. We've talked to a number of people about trying this and everyone has been enthusiastic.  Within our 2 hour block of time, we plan on having three 35-minute rotating sessions with 5 minutes to regroup and change locations between session.  For example, if we had folks interested in volunteering to lead 12 sessions we would use the classroom and activity spaces available and have 4 sessions per rotation. Folks would be free to select what sessions they wanted every 35 minutes.

"Educating the Community through Skills-Based Health Student Work" is being led by Cassie Brook and Maria Hallman, two award-winning health educators from Indiana.  Cassie teaches at the middle school level and was the 2018 SHAPE America Midwest District Health Teacher of the Year. Maria teaches at the high school level and was the  2016 Indiana Health Teacher of the Year and the INSHAPE Conference Director for the state.
Details: Join us as two experienced secondary health teachers share how their students develop essential health skills while preparing to educate the community through simple displays and larger health fairs. 
  • Cassie hosts an annual fitness night where the community can explore various local options for fitness, sport, recreation, wellness, and nutrition. Her middle school health students practice the essential health skill of accessing valid health information, products, and services while preparing poster presentations to share with peers and the community at fitness night.
  • Maria's high school health classes have created a health fair for the local elementary schools. Students advocate for health by becoming content experts and creating interactive displays for elementary students. They access valid health resources and write SMART goals to guide their work. Health at the elementary level is lacking in her district, so these fair exposes students to a greater variety of health topics.
They will share their instructional plans for middle and high school health, student planning documents, options for project display (low or high tech), options for smaller or large-scale community display, strategies for planning a health fair, and assessment rubrics.
  • Discussion may also include how to use these events as a platform for health and physical education advocacy.
