Special Interest Groups

SHAPE America’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide members with similar interests and/or professional specialties the opportunity to stay current on key areas in health and physical education and to contribute in various ways to the SHAPE America community.

SHAPE America members are eligible to participate in various SIGs (at no extra cost) to:
  • Stay current on the latest trends in a field of interest;
  • Connect with members through mySHAPE America, SHAPE America's members-only online community; and
