From this point on, the Community Sport Network team will no longer be sending out articles.

It was established in August 2013 as a free to access news-line on all things happening in Community Sport. It was set up as a small contribution to the legacy of London 2012 which inspired us all and will live long in our memories.

Nearly five years down the track there are now a number of other respected sporting news offerings online, so we thank you for your readership and support which has extended to over 200 countries, and wish you all well in your ongoing efforts to help create a fitter, healthier sporting nation.

Thanks for being a part of it!

"Strive to Thrive: Moving PE forward in times of challenge and change”.

The afPE 2017 National Conference will be held at St George’s Park in Burton Upon Trent on the 4th & 5th July.

The Association for Physical Education (afPE) national conference is critical for all physical education and school sport professionals working in the sector.

afPE recognises that they must work together with valued partners to ensure that all staff, governors, parents and pupils understand the differences between PE, school sport and physical activity and that they are not in competition but together create a whole picture of physical and emotional well being.  
Join the conference to find solutions that will have a positive impact on physical and emotional well-being outcomes for all young people.

You will be able to access cutting edge developments, innovative thinking, high quality resources and engage in professional discussion, sharing and networking.

With a choice of 23 interactive workshops and a range of inspirational and insightful keynote speakers, there is something for everyone.

Confirmed speakers include:

    Steve Parry – Olympic Medallist & BBC Sports Presenter
    Prof Guy Claxton – Author & Educational Reformer
    Beth Tweddle MBE – Britain’s Greatest Ever Female Gymnast
