This innovative study is a collaboration between Sport Ireland, Healthy Ireland and Sport Northern Ireland in commissioning the first all-island study into Children’s Sport Participation and Physical Activity (CSPPA).
The study provides a rich insight into the experiences of children and adolescents
throughout Ireland around their participation in physical activity, sport and physical
education. It is particularly beneficial in highlighting many similarities in the physical
activity behaviours between children in the two jurisdictions as well as some notable
differences. Having this information will allow us to share and exchange ideas on how
and why such differences emerge and most importantly on what we can do to deal with
the challenges that the report raises.
