Fit for Girls is a joint programme between sportscotland and the Youth Sport Trust which promotes physical activity among girls aged 11-16, specifically those who are least likely to be active.
Funded by the Scottish Government, Fit for Girls aims to bring about sustainable change in schools and build a positive future for girls participation in lifelong physical activity.
This report presents the key findings from an evaluation of Fit for Girls. The aim of the evaluation was to assess the impact of Fit for Girls on levels of participation in PE, physical activity and sport among secondary girls.
The evaluation draws upon quantitative and qualitative research methods to provide a comprehensive picture of; approach and delivery at the school level, an understanding of girls perceptions, attitudes and enjoyment levels of PE, physical activity and sport and explores the participation rates for girls, low active and active girls.
