This year's featured presenters include:
|Grant Scheffer, CEO and Partner, GenMove - A native of South Africa’s southern coast, Grant Scheffer discovered a lifelong love of sports and adventure at the early age of four, when he was invited to become a lifeguard trainee. The avid swimmer soon took up bodyboarding, going on to win Springbok Colours, South Africa’s highest sports award, and attend the bodyboarding world championship. Grant then began building and racing sailboats internationally. After helming across the North Atlantic for the Austrian Whitbread Challenge Team, he landed in America, where he met his wife and co-founded the movement education company Socci Sport LLC. Treasurer of the Executive Committee of the Society of State Leaders of Health and Physical Education, Grant now helms GenMove USA, building upon Socci Sport's success to deliver innovative programs and equipment solutions to generations of youth.
|Beth Wendt, Movement Education Specialist, GenMove - Beth is a native of Marietta, GA, where she grew up playing team-sports, excelling in basketball and softball from an early age. Beth attended the College of Charleston, where she graduated with a degree in Communications and Sociology. Beth’s passion for social, educational, and community development lead her to co-found an educational 501c3 non-profit, Charleston Peace One Day directly out of college. The non-profit’s goal is to teach practical, positive ways to conflict resolution and non-violence to children and adults through community events and education programs. Combining a love for activity, sports, and community action, Beth met the founders of GenMove, USA and invited them to come in and teach peace and conflict-resolution concepts through sports activities in local schools, community events, and college classes. After seeing what GenMove efforts did for teachers and students around the world, she joined the GenMove team in September 2011. Beth now enjoys living a healthy-active lifestyle in Charleston, S.C and spreading her passion for health and movement education and belief that every child and person deserves the opportunity to have an active and healthy life!
|John Bennett of UNC-Wilmington - A native of the tidewater region of Virginia, John Bennett is truly a remarkable individual! John has not only served as President of NCAAHPERD, but of the national AAHPERD as well! Just last November John was named North Carolina's University Physical Education Teacher of the Year and the state's University Health Educator of the Year. He is the only person to win both NCAAHPERD awards in the same year. He has also been the recipient of both the AAHPERD and NCAAHPERD Honor Award.
John has been teaching dance, health and physical education to people of all ages, from preschool to older adults, since 1969. He is a distinguished teaching professor in the health and applied human sciences department at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where he has taught dance and health and physical education since 1992. His primary teaching areas in dance are pre-K-12 children's creative dance, folk, square, ballroom, and Latin dance. John has written more than 100 publications and given more than 500 presentations throughout his career all around the world, and he stays in high demand to teach dance and provide staff development across the United States and abroad. His major focus in his teaching and research is on the preservation of our intangible cultural heritage through the medium of dance and bringing people together through dance. He was a K-12 HPE public school teacher for 15 years of his career.
|Dee and Jim Hall of Wilmington - Dee and Jim Hall are familar faces to those who attend either the Spring or the Fall PELT. In 2010, Dee was awarded the PELT Memorial Award, the NCAAHPERD Honor Award in 2009, and was named the Middle School Physical Education Teacher of the Year in 2000. Her husband Jim is an avid supporter of Jump Rope for Heart and was honored as the Jump Rope for Heart Coordinator if the Year in 2010. As his school website says, "He loves to be outside hunting, fishing, diving, wind surfing, archery, playing tennis and anything else that one has to be active to take part in." At last April's Spring PELT, Jim participated in his 26th pot hole! That must surely be a record of some sort!
NCAAHPERD is proud to host the Fall PELT at the Trinity Conference Center located at 618 Salter Path Road, in Pine Knoll Shores, North Carolina. Nestled in a pristine maritime forest on the Outer Banks, the center extends from Bogue Sound to the Atlantic Ocean and provides a variety of modern facilities and comfortable accommodations. A mild climate and award-winning landscaping, designed with sensitivity to the island environment, provide peaceful and restful surroundings. Comfortable lounge areas with fireplaces, refrigerators, and ice makers, and delicious home cooked meals served buffet and family style provide the perfect environment for stimulating fellowship with other North Carolina educators.
The Center's guestrooms and dorms are nestled within the natural beauty and tranquillity of the maritime forest. Guestrooms have a private bath, double and single beds and are individually heated and cooled. Trinity Center dormitories are sub-divided into 2 large sleeping quarters and includes a bathroom, screened porch and private center room.
What to Pack and What to Wear
When packing for the Fall PELT, be sure to bring clothing suitable for participation in physical activity because our awesome presenters will have plenty of new and exciting activities to take back to share with your students.
Otherwise, pack just as you would for a two-night stay at the beach during the fall. Fall weather on the Crystal Coast varies greatly. Fall days can be very warm, whereas fall evenings may feel chilly because of the ocean breeze. September's average high temperature is 83 degrees and the average low is 63 degrees.
Other items you might want to consider bringing include a flashlight and a bathing suit. The flashlight may prove handy for evening activities. If you are interested, you may be able to enjoy a swim in the nearby Atlantic Ocean.
