The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity

Launched in 2011, CIMSPA is the professional development body for the UK’s sport, fitness and physical activity sector. CIMSPA has been awarded chartered status by the Privy Council.

CIMSPA provides leadership, support and empowerment for professionals working in sport and physical activity and a single unified voice for the sector. It is the strategic lead for professional development in the sector.

CIMSPA is recognised as the authoritative voice for the sector by government departments and key agencies such as Sport England and Public Health England. CIMSPA works closely with key partners such as ukactive, the Sport and Recreation Alliance, Sporta and cCLOA.

The institute has membership options for everyone working in, or interested in working in, the sport and physical activity world – from student and apprentice through to service director and CEO.

CIMSPA already provides a route to chartered status for those working in leisure operations, and is developing similar routes for the whole of the sector:
  • Exercise and fitness
  • Performance sport and sports administration
  • Community sport
  • Physical activity
