The Oklahoma Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance is Oklahoma's state professional organization. We are affiliated with regional and national associations; SHAPE America Southern District Association, and the Society of Health and Physical Education of America (SHAPE America). We invite students and professionals involved in all aspects of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance to join our organization. Our membership includes those who are affiliated with public and private elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities and recreation and dance centers. We serve people of all ages and abilities from early childhood to senior citizen. OAHPERD is an association of professionals in the state of Oklahoma. Members pay annual dues to the association which provides members with state newsletters, state journals, member fees (reduced fees) at the annual state convention, and regional conferences. OAHPERD membership is separate from membership in SHAPE America.
