The 2015 Opportunities for Physical Activity at School study
Bulletin 14: Components of other physical activity programming: developing skills and attitudes
The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute’s 2015 Opportunities for Physical Activity at School survey explored components of physical activity programming. School administrators were asked to indicate the degree to which their physical activity programming is aimed at increasing participation rates in sports and play, promoting and/or increasing inclusivity, and developing skills and attitudes. This bulletin summarizes the findings with regards to developing skills and attitudes. Specifically, the survey asked about the degree of emphasis placed on developing skills and positive attitudes towards physical activity. Additionally, the survey looked at the amount of emphasis in support of these behaviours such as utilization of qualified coaches and injury prevention.
