Spring Physical Education
YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly
Black Mountain, NC
The Spring PELT is one of the premier K-12 physical education conferences in the country. For more than 40 years physical educators from across the region and the nation have gathered in the spring of the year to recharge their batteries and engage in inspiring professional development activities.
So, pack your bags and GO WEST and spend a few days in the beautiful North Carolina mountains relaxing, learning, and sharing ideas with fellow professionals. Every year we invite awesome presenters to provide you with numerous ideas and activities to take back to share with your students.
The theme for the 2012 40th Anniversary Spring PELT was
"From Our Own Back Yard!"
