Abstract

The ‘Am I Bovvered?’ project was a two-year study aiming to develop, implement and evaluate sustainable exercise-based interventions with girls aged 11-15 years in order to improve their engagement in regular physical activity. The study took place in three phases that corresponded with the project’s main aims. This summary provides an account of Phases Two and Three. The aims of the first phase of the study were to: Explore factors that motivate and create barriers to 11-12 and 14-15 year old girls engaging in regular physical activity (Phase One has been completed -http://www.kent.ac.uk/CHSS/docs/Am_I_Bovvered_Phase_One.pdf). The aims of the second and third phases were to: Develop and implement activities chosen by inactive 11-12 and 14-15 year old girls with the support of a multi-agency team (Phase Two). Evaluate the impact of the project, examining factors associated with young girls’ engagement in physical exercise (Phase Three). Make recommendations for policy and practice.
