What are the determinants for PA?
Income- A parents income can effect if the child can participate in sports clubs or even e.g. go swimming
Confidence- If a child is co-ordinated and can do basic skills e.g. catching a ball, they know they can participate in lots of sports and will more likely enjoy it and want to participate
Friendship and interests- You will most likely have friends that have certain interests, if they like sport, you might be more inclined to do sport if the offer is there
Facilities- Does school have a range of facilities? Also, are there fscilities available near their homes?
Gender- Still more stereotypical male-orientated sports being play e.g. football, rather than a large range
Health conditions- A child may feel that if they have a health condition, they cannot participate in PA, rather than knowing adapted ways to engage
