Mey van Munster
My name is Mey van Munster. I’m from Brazil and I am honored to be appointed as the Regional Representative for South America.
We are looking forward to engage our neighbor countries to IFAPA, in order to constitute a South American Association of Adapted Physical Activity in a short future.

Meanwhile, I would like to encourage you to visit the Brazilian Association of Adapted Motor Activity – SOBAMA’s website:


and the Chilean Society of Adapted Physical Activity – SOCHIAFA’s medias https://www.facebook.com/sochiafa. Both associations were founded, respectively, in December/1994 and in July/2017.

About me: I’ve been working with Adapted Physical Education and Sports in Brazil for the past 30 years. I am a member of the Brazilian Association of Adapted Motor Activity – SOBAMA since 1995, and joined IFAPA in 2011. Currently I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Education and Human Motricity – DEFMH of the Federal University of São Carlos – UFSCar, where I coordinate the Center for Studies in Adapted Physical Activity – NEAFA and service projects related to this topic. I also teach and advise at the master’s and doctorate levels at the Special Education Graduate Program at UFSCar. The main research topics are “Accessibility and Inclusion in Physical Education” and “Teaching and learning processes in Adapted Physical Activity and Sports

I will do my best to keep you informed about national and regional events. If you’d like more information please don’t hesitate to contact me.
