This popular network is the result of an exciting partnership between AOSEC and AoC Sport.  Open to AOSEC network subscribers and members of AoC sport. The network supports the development of all aspects of sport related activity in colleges and covers both curriculum and operational.

AoC Sport provides national updates at every meeting. External organisations have included, WorkdSkills UK and the National Citizenship Service. College experiences play a large role in this network, with colleagues from in and out of the region, presenting innovative work and best practice.

Group discussions feature at every network, giving delegates the opportunity to raise any concerns or challenges.
