Abstract

The "Am I Bovvered?" project is 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: 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). 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.
