Introduction to GBA Plus

Youth fitness case study

Factor 3: GBA Plus / Age

Studies show that participation in sports is also influenced by age: The rate of team sport participation peaks at age 11 then drops in the teen years, more rapidly for girls.

When this data is combined with what we already know about gender differences in sports participation, we can conclude that boys are somewhat more involved in sports activities than girls, particularly throughout the teen years. This information may lead you to change the focus of your initiative.
