Physical Education Division

The Ohio Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance includes different divisions which have been developed to promote disciplinary and interdisciplinary learning in the core disciplines represented by members of the Association. The Divisions will promote professional development programs and workshops for their specific membership throughout the year. In addition, the divisions are responsible for encouraging presentations at the Annual Convention within each specific discipline.

Each division and its chair shall also serve as state-wide advocates for curriculum, public policy, and policies which affect the disciplines represented by its membership.

OAHPERD is now on Twitter!

Now I know what many of you might be thinking…"I don’t do social media!” Before you think that excuse gets you off the hook, I want you to know that this is my first experience with social media as well, and I’ve found that Twitter has many professional applications that I’ve found very beneficial. I encourage you to give it a try.

Follow @OAHPERD. In addition, you can follow other great organizations like NASPE, SHAPE America, Healthy Schools Campaign, and the American Heart Association, among many others. A special thanks to Selene Kelley for convincing me this was a good idea!
