2017-2018 VAHPERD Strategic Plan

“Actively Living Trough Wellness”


Mission Statement

VAHPERD is a professional association of educators that advocate quality programs in health, physical education, recreation, dance, and sport. The association seeks to facilitate the professional growth and development of its members through meaningful membership services, current research, best educational practices, and legislation that will impact the profession. It is the vision of the Association to have a positive impact on society as a whole.

We can define Wellness as “an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.” Wellness consists of six dimensions: social, occupational, spiritual, physical, intellectual and emotional. As health educators, regardless of what road we travel within the association, wellness is what we strive to achieve. The 2017-2018 Convention Theme is titled:


“Actively Living Through Wellness.”


  1. Provide professional development opportunities that promote leadership and instructional best practices for all health and physical educators in Virginia. 

Actions that will meet the intent of this goal include:

-  Support and promote best-practice training opportunities designed to implement the 2015 Health and Physical Education Standards of Learning.

-  Provide professional development opportunities that promote best practices within the fields we serve.

-  Facilitate opportunities for VAHPERD TOYs to provide professional development to Virginia health and physical education teachers. 

-  Promote leadership and advocacy for the members of VAHPERD.
