Join us for our 85th Annual Conference!

The NYS AHPERD Annual Conference is the premier event for professionals in the field of physical activity, physical education, school-based health, and wellness in New York State! Each year we host nearly 1,500 professionals and future professionals from around the state. We offer close to 200 unique programs that cover a wide variety of topics and incorporate the most recent findings on how students engage in physical education, health education and activity programs. Presentations showcase the latest techniques employed by successful teachers and coaches from not only NYS but across the country as well.

We offer a robust exhibit hall with over 60+ different vendors and summer camps who are friendly and eager to engage in discussion about how their products and services will assist you in providing a quality and efficient environment for your school communities.

Network and Celebrate Excellence!

Our annual conference gives attendees a unique opportunity to engage in meaningful and constructive conversations with individuals who are operating programs similar to your own, from all over the state. The chance to share ideas and offer feedback will be a valuable asset in approaching new and innovative ways of adjusting and enhancing your current curriculum, instruction and assessment strategies.

We take time to appropriately recognize those who have achieved amazing levels of excellence throughout the year. Master teachers, distinguished professionals and outstanding future professionals are acknowledged in front of their peers at our traditional awards ceremonies.
