International Symposia on APA (ISAPA)

The International Symposium on Adapted Physical Activity (ISAPA) is held every second year to provide physical activity professionals with an opportunity to share their knowledge and experience.

All interested individuals are encouraged to participate. The participation of people with disabilities is particularly encouraged to ensure that adapted physical activity professionals remain "in touch " with the needs of the people they wish to serve.

ISAPA programmes include research presentations, building sessions for the discussion of new ideas, practical workshops for new activities and an international film contest. In addition to the ISAPA, regional conferences are held regularly by the Asian, European, and North American regional organizations.
