A Comprehensive School-based Physical Activity Program (CSPAP) represents a commitment to support the health and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and the community. A CSPAP is a similar approach that specifically focuses on incorporating additional physical activity opportunities for youth within the school day and beyond physical education classes. The goal of a CSPAP is clear--to ensure children at least meet the physical activity recommendation for school-aged youth of 60 minutes or more on most days of the week (Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2008). In this article, the authors discuss the importance of a CSPAP in K-12 schools. (Contains 1 table.)
