For Information

Youth Sports Trust: Physical activity

The Youth Sports Trust has published a report, The Class of 2035, which presents four possible scenarios - both positive and negative - for the future. It suggests that future generations of young people risk becoming “hostages to handheld devices” and “disengaged from physical activity”. A survey of 1,000 5-16 year olds found that:

  • 75% of young people enjoy PE at school
  • 64% feel better after taking part in sport
  • 35% said they spoke to their friends more on social media than in person
  • 23% saw playing computer games with friends as a form of physical activity

They are not included in Paralympic events and Multi-classification events but can compete in any able-bodied event.
