The CSPAP’s inspirations to developing Sunshine Sports in China are as follows: strengthen scientific research, establish a physical activity program that matches up with it from the perspective of social ecology; value the bases and central roles of physical education, reinforce physical education teacher training; create physical activity culture and environments, provide opportunities for physical activities; establish related supporting policies, build evaluation and supervision mechanisms.
