Canadian Social Trends – Kids’ Sports

by Marion on September 13th, 2010

This research, from Statistics Canada, speaks to the change in sport participation between 1992 and 2005 for those ages 5 – 14, and also to the role that the family plays in sport involvement. While this is a ‘younger than usual’ Sprynt age, the research does break out 11 – 14 year olds, and it does speak to male and female differentials. There is also a very interesting piece that references adolescents (whose parents are involved in sport) as the group with the highest involvement in organized sports (ages 15 – 19 years).

A nice and easy read, and a great bunch of research to build the case for looking for ways to create sport opportunities that meet the needs of adolescents relative to children and/or to market sports to adults as a means to encouraging the involvment of their children in sport.
