Making our District an Active St Albans

Active st albans bannerActive St Albans is the Community Sport & Physical Activity Network (CSPAN) for St Albans City & District – an independent, voluntary-led organisation that looks to support local community clubs and organisations to deliver more, and better, sport and physical activity to the residents of the district.

The network was organised as part of Sport England’s campaign to develop an effective ‘Delivery System’ that enabled funding and information to filter down from national level to a local level. Creating ‘Community Sports Networks’ in each Local Authority allowed there to be a consistent approach to developing local sport and physical activity opportunities.

Active St Albans is financially supported by the St Albans City and District Council which enables us to carry on offering and providing support to local community sports clubs and organisations.

Physical Activity is the general term which describes any movement the body makes which requires energy. There are many types of physical activity including sport which through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing entertainment to participants. The benefits of sport and physical activity are substantial and can support development and change in a number of areas such as behaviour, education, health and wellbeing.
