Welcome to CAHPERD


If you believe in the importance of your profession to the education of the whole child, the need to support and engage future professionals, the need to keep informing legislators and administrators of the value of our professions in health, physical education, recreation, and dance, and if you want a variety of professional development opportunities that will provide for continued learning, then join the California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance!


As a part of the continuing CORE (CAHPERD Online Resource Events) series that began this summer, we are excited to offer several virtual presentations on the latest topics surrounding Health and Physical Education instruction today.  CAHPERD has assembled the best of the best in our field to help you before school begins! These workshops are FREE! Don't miss out!
