The Children’s Sport Participation and Physical Activity Study (CSPPA17-18)

24.05.2018

This multi-centre study, led by the University of Limerick, brings together Ireland’s best expertise from the respective fields of physical activity, physical education, sport and coaching studies, epidemiology, public health and statistics. It will replicate and improve on CSPPA09-10, and use the experience of academics within the University of Limerick, University College Cork, Dublin City University and Ulster University to conduct CSPPA17-18. The purpose of CSPPA17-18 is to provide research that will:

  • Comprehensively assess the participation levels of Irish children in sport, physical education and physical activity using both subjective and objective modalities
  • Determine the factors that enhance or inhibit this involvement
  • Demonstrate the health benefits of participation in regular health-enhancing physical activity for Irish children and youth
  • Provide a direct comparison between CSPPA09-10 and CSPPA17-18 This project has been funded by Sport Ireland and Healthy Ireland (€288,613) Duration: October 2017-October 2018 Further Information about the project and an update on progress can be found here
