AAHPERD special events include lectures, meetings, workshops and celebrations. Some of these events are held with partners – Districts, State AHPERDs, or like-minded organizations. Wherever AAHPERD goes, our goal is to help you be better prepared to do your job as a teacher/coach, lead your community or advocate for girls and women in sport.
Two of AAHPERD's most special events occur at the National Convention & Expo each spring. The Rachel Bryant/Guiding Woman in Sports Award and Lecture Luncheon are both held on what we call "AAHPERD Friday." Each event honors a committed leader in girls' and women's sports.
National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) is organized each February by a Coalition of five girl-serving organizations. AAHPERD leaders and volunteers lobby on Capitol Hill and network with advocates from all five organizations.
Each year AAHPERD also works with selected partners to present awards like the Wade Trophy. Check here and on the AAHPERD Calendar for further information!
