Student Majors Association Leadership

The NCAAHPERD-SM Student Majors Association Leadership Workshop is an opportunity for our student members to learn how to be leaders in their respective fields, at their respective schools, and in the organization. We will have an application and resume review process and the 30 most qualified students will be selected to be Student Majors Association Delegates. The accepted students will act as delegates for NCAAHPERD-SM on their campus’. This is a great opportunity to improve your leadership skills and learn more about being a professional.

 This year the NCAAHPERD-SM Student Leadership Workshop will be held April 24-25, 2015 at Chestnut Ridge Camp and Retreat Center, 4300 Camp Chestnut Ridge Road, Efland, NC 27243. More information about Chestnut Ridge Camp can be found by calling 919‐338‐2820 or visiting their website at:

The Student Leadership Workshop will be held in Efland, NC at Chestnut Ridge Camp and Retreat Center on Friday and Saturday, April 24-25. Any student, who is a member of NCAAHPERD-SM, majoring in health, physical education, dance, exercise science, sport management, athletic training, or recreation may apply to attend the event.IMG_0010.JPG

Students must be a member of NCAAHPERD-SM to be eligible. You may register to be a member for only $10.00 as an undergraduate or $20.00 as a graduate student, per year. Membership registration can be completed by going to the following address.

Students will attend at NO COST! Lodging, Friday's dinner, and Saturday's breakfast are provided by NCAAHPERD-SM.

The fun starts Friday with check in from 2 pm to 2:30 pm at the Morris Center. After a short meeting, it’s on to the low ropes challenge course until 6 pm. After dinner, attendees will gather back at the Morris Center for a short program. At 9 pm, students can gather around a campfire and snack on S’Mores. Afterwards students are on their own to bed‐down for an evening in retreat’s cabins. Saturday begins with breakfast at 8 am, followed at 9 am by a program in the Morris Center. The highlight of the morning’s activities is the team building and initiative games session from 10 to 11 am. A brief closing session in the Morris Center ends the retreat at noon.

During the retreat, students will learn about NCAAHPERD-SM, meet some of the Board of Directors, meet their NCAAHPERD-SM Student Majors Association Adviser, President and President-elect, and start their professional networking by getting to know one another during the activity sessions. This is a great opportunity for college students.

Each student selected by NCAAHPERD-SM will need to complete and submit the online registration form. Once the student's selection has been confirmed by NCAAHPERD-SM, we will send the student a Retreat Packet and Agenda. The Retreat Packet will contain directions to Chestnut Ridge, a map of Chestnut Ridge, a Challenge Course Participant Information Letter, a Challenge Course Release Form, an Agenda and a list of the items students will want to bring to the retreat. On that list will be 2 t-shirts from your respective universities (to trade with other students) and sheets, a pillow, soap, and towels for your stay in the cabin.

The conference will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Friday (4/24/2015) and conclude Saturday at noon. If possible, travel arrangements should allow for arrival no later than 2:00 pm Friday and departure not before noon Saturday.
