CS4L's Active for Life Gets Social!

This is the most efficient way to stay on top of new information, and it will allow you to interact with a community of like-minded parents who are interested in giving their children the best possible start in sport and in life.
In the coming days we will be launching the improved CS4L website. The website will provide a clean look with enhanced capabilities, bringing CS4L into a new era and allowing us to continue to inspire 100,000 Champions. Make sure to visit the site next week and spread the news about this fresh and exciting portal!
