PHASE Asia Pacific is a conference for all educators focussed on physical education, health, athletics, sports, and experiential learning.  The conference allows participants to learn from leading authorities in their respective fields as well as from practitioner presenters, to network with fellow educators, and to access good practice and resources in multiple formats.

PHASE has evolved from the Asia Pacific Physical Education Conference (APPEC) which was a dedicated Physical Education & Wellness event for the Asia Pacific region starting in 2015.

Invasion games are commonly played at schools as part of the HPE curriculum, as formally organised extracurricular sports or informally during students' free time.

Developing a base knowledge of the common concepts underpinning invasion activities such as use of space and offensive and defensive roles, options and strategies can assist learners' overall performance in these types of games. This can lead to increased confidence, enjoyment and participation when playing them.

A PE teacher and sports coach for over 25 years, the presenter builds his students' understanding of invasion games "from the ground up", focusing on practicality, fun and variety in ways that easily link with the philosophies of game-centred approaches such as Game Sense and TGFU. Moreover, the presenter has found this strategy has enhanced students' engagement, enjoyment, decision-making and tactical thinking during class.

This workshop will allow attendees to participate in games that the presenter uses with classes from middle to senior secondary levels and interact with each other to build on the ideas presented.
