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.

Practical Activities and Methods for Organising Strength & Conditioning Activities with HPE Classes
Recent studies have suggested that less than one in five Australian children aged between 5 - 17 meet the national recommended daily physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes per day. As well, Australian children have below average aerobic fitness and poor movement skills. Improving fitness and movement capabilities through enhancing areas such as muscular strength and aerobic endurance are frequently presented as viable methods to positively develop teenagers' physical capabilities as well as their cognitive and psychosocial wellbeing. Consequently, HPE lessons during school time are becoming increasingly important as opportunities for children and teens to develop their physical fitness capacities and their fundamental movement abilities.

While many HPE practitioners readily engage in what might be termed S&C activities in their own time, they may also benefit from broadening their knowledge base of activities and ways to implement them which are suitable and practical for use with their students in a school setting. This active workshop will allow attendees to participate in some of the wide range of movements and activities (using bodyweight and readily available equipment) utilised by the presenter in a variety of settings to keep the sessions fun and varied. Moreover, strategies used to successfully enhance the students' enjoyment and boost student engagement will be discussed and demonstrated along with modifications to cater for primary-aged students.

The presenter is a P-12 HPE teacher with over twenty years of experience, as well as a Level 2 S&C Coach. He currently lectures at a regional university campus, teaches at a large regional high school and conducts S&C sessions with students from all physical activity backgrounds and abilities in his HPE classes as well as with elite junior athletes.

A Different Approach to Teaching Sprinting
Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) are considered the cornerstone of a physically literate and active life. The skill of running is a central component of these skills and the ability to take-off quickly, accelerate and decelerate provides the foundation for participation in most sporting activities.

This active workshop will allow attendees to participate in various sprint-related developmental activities that the presenter - a P-12 HPE teacher with over twenty years of experience - successfully uses with middle and secondary students of varying abilities.

This is not meant to be a session dealing with all the technical aspects of sprinting. Instead, it will involve the presenter demonstrating strategies and activities he uses to enhance students' engagement, increase their participation in sprinting lessons, and build their capabilities in components of sprinting as they relate to track running as well as to general sport.

Connecting LTAD To Your PE Program Description
Many Physical Educators have asked how do we provide our students and athletes with the knowledge, skills and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of physical activity and athletic competition.

Using the research behind the Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD) and Physical Literacy development we can start to plan and build Physical Education programs that can help develop the knowledge, skills and confidence needed for everyone to enjoy a lifetime of physical activity but also help athletes develop the knowledge and skills needed to enjoy the competitive athletics environment.

Building Invasion Games from the Ground Up
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.
