National Physical Education & Sport Week

SHAPE America's National Physical Education & Sport Week calls attention to the value of physical education and physical activity in the lives of children and adults. It also serves as the kickoff to National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, sponsored by the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.

How to Participate

This week, and all month long, we encourage you to try new activities, raise awareness for effective health, physical education and sport practices and to share tips and ideas with your professional community.
