Our approach to delivering services

Be Fit For Life Coordinators are experts in physical activity, working across sectors in their unique communities, setting the stage for collaboration and alignment of services to support their community in the development of physical literacy. The Network brings together people, organizations and resources from all parts of the community. This Network approach creates strong relationships, which supports the coordinated physical activity delivery system in Alberta.

Each Centre across Alberta provides workshops, resources and events for coaches, teachers, recreation leaders and other physical literacy champions. Some Centres, like the ASDC – Northeast, also offer physical activity programming in their communities.

Mission and vision

Our mission is to ensure the delivery of educational programs, services and resources that promote and facilitate the development and maintenance of active, healthy lifestyles to all Albertans.

Our vision is for Albertans to live active, healthy lifestyles.
