Addressing the decline in sport participation in secondary schools

Research has shown a decline in sport participation for youth between 13-17 years old and that, in order to increase participation in this age group, sporting activities need to be designed to meet their motivations and interests.

The Youth Participation Research Project is an important project investigating the barriers to sport participation amongst Australian youths in the secondary school setting. Check out the project’s promotional video here and suite of resources can be found at: Youth_participation_research_project including:

  • Overview of the Project
  • Engaging disengaged students
  • The sport-in-school relationship
  • Addressing the decline in sport participation report

This is a great resource for advocacy in your school and Physical Education Studies.
