               1. People
• Most people’s choice of physical
  activity is influenced by others. People
  tend to choose the same activities
  as there friends or members
  of their family.
          1. People - Family
• If your parents have a keen
  interest in a particular sport or
  introduce you to an activity at a
  young age, you are more likely to
  take up the same sport.
• Children whose parents socialise
  at sports clubs are more likely to
  be influenced and be involved in
  the same sport if their parents
  enjoy playing it.
• How might family have a negative
  influence on physical activity
         1. People - Friends
• How many of you took up a
  sport or do physical activity
  because your friends do?
• You are also more likely to
  try sports if you have a
  friend that already plays or if
  their friendship group sees it
  as a cool thing to do.

  worn as a fashion item
  regardless of whether they
  participate or not.

  shirts, rappers wear
  American Football shirts
  in videos and trainer makes
  come in and out of fashion.
          2. Image - Fashion
• Sports also fall in and out of
  fashion during different times of
  the year.
• Can you think of examples and
  why this might be the case?
• Wimbledon fortnight.

impact on daily life and are often out of
a person’s control.
     3. Cultural Factors - Age
• How can the age of a
  person influence their
  chances of participating in
  certain activities?

  to both sexes, generally, each sex
  competes separately for safety
• Public perception can be a
  problem. Perhaps girls

     3. Cultural Factors - Race
• Why are there fewer
  black swimmers, tennis
  players or golfers?

 4. Resources – Access & Location

• Where a person lives can
  have a great impact on what
  activities they can
• For example, if facilities are
  not available locally or
  transport links do not exist,
  it would be hard for people
  to join a sports club.
 4. Resources – Availability & Time
• Participants need the time in
  order to do physical activity
  and also the facilities must
  be available.
• For example if you have a
  Saturday job but the taster
  sessions for a new sport for
  beginners is only on that
  day, you could not go.
      5. Health and Wellbeing
• If you are ill you will not be
  able to take part on a
  temporary basis.
• Some health problems will
  prevent participation in
  some activities but this only
  limits their choice and
  doesn’t mean participation
  has to stop.
• For example asthma
     6. Socio-economic – Cost
• Most activities cost! Hire
  of facilities, equipment,
  coaching and therefore
  some people cannot
  afford to participate.

  expensive and cheapest
