Girls in Physical Education Increasing Participation and Success

With the onset of adolescence, participation rates in physical activity often tend to decline. Many PE teachers have noticed that participation rates for girls drop off more rapidly than for boys.

Why is it that involvement in physical activity for girls drops off more rapidly than for boys?

This is a serious concern as participation in school physical education programs has been shown to have a positive influence on a person’s physical activity later in life.

Conversely, bad experiences at school can often be detrimental in shaping people’s life-long attitudes to physical activity.

Girls In Physical Education – Increasing Participation & Success is a 23-minute DVD programme that examines some of the reasons why girls lose interest in physical education and then focuses on a number of strategies to help teachers tackle the problem.
