S02 - A Weight Inclusive Health Promotion Approach to Physical and Health Education

This session will allow you to explore weight bias and internal feelings about weight and physical size.

We will discuss how to incorporate a weight inclusive health promotion approach in your physical and health education classes, and explore language that can help students feel good about their bodies.

S08 - Effective Training with (Nearly) No Equipment

Not everyone has access to a gym facility or home fitness equipment in order to workout in their personal time. Many students have access to minimal, and often NO, equipment. However, these things don't need to be a barrier to building strength and fitness. This session will get participants not just learning a variety of exercises, but give them ways to increase or decrease the challenge without worrying about equipment. Participants will also be shown a variety of formats they can use for home workouts. And YES, we will workout! There will be one unconventional piece of equipment that will be introduced - the towel.

S28 - Swat Ball

Swat Ball is a fun, electrifying game involving 2 teams that can be played in any space with 4 walls. Each team is separated into fielders (offense) and goalies (defense). The walls on each end of the court are used as the goals while the two sidewalls are part of play. The objective of the game is for the fielders to swat the ball in the air towards the other team’s goal. Once the ball hits the opponent’s goal, a single point is scored. Once a point is scored, the fielders and goalies switch roles immediately and continue play. This is a great game to play with any class as it does not have a maximum number of players required.
