Content

The aim of this unit is to enable students to develop an understanding of the nature of children's physical activity and sport participation and the influences on these behaviours in a variety of contexts. Topics covered include: an introduction to children's physical activity and sport in relation to health, physiology and behaviour; determinants and correlates of children's physical activity and sport; and the promotion of physical activity and sport in several settings.
