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.

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).

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).

Make recommendations for policy and practice.
