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.
