The Governor’s Commission on Physical Fitness and Sports was established in 1967 by the Legislature (Acts 1967, No. 215, P.580). The mandated function of the Commission is to protect, promote and improve the physical fitness of the residents of the State. It is one of the agencies responsible for performing the stewardship functions of Alabama government.
