INSHAPE 2018 Starts Now

New opportunities. New resources. New energy. New venue.

Indiana's new framework (ESSA) includes health and physical education as a part of a well-rounded education. A new journey starts now as students, teachers, parents, administrators, and communities learn how active students succeed and healthy schools succeed.
It's a new beginning and it Starts Now. Building on a century of success, the 2018 INSHAPE State Conference leads Indiana educators with best practices and innovative techniques. Join us as we chart a bigger, better future.
Based on growing membership (70% growth over last year), INSHAPE has a new conference home - Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield, Indiana. It is the perfect destination to grow, learn, and network with highly effective educators.
Grand Park, official home of the Indianapolis Colts training camp, is a destination like no other. The thoughtfully designed 400-acre Sports Campus features 50+ fields for baseball, softball, soccer, football, and lacrosse. The Grand Park Events Center houses three full-sized indoor soccer fields, a restaurant, and meeting spaces.
Grand Park also features more than 10 miles of pedestrian/bicycle trails, including the largest trail head on the Monon Corridor. The Cambria Suites/Hotel on the Grand Park grounds serves as INSHAPE's official lodging destination.
Save the date: The State Conference is scheduled for November 4 - 6, 2018. Full conference programming and registration will be available in early May.
