  • Influences on Participation in Sport
    • People
      • Family
        • Children can sometimes participate in the same activities as their parents do.
        • Although this is also to do with resources, your parents are the ones to pay for all the equipment required for a sport, so if it is too expensive you may not be encouraged to participate.
      • Peers
        • The influence of your friends can encourage you to participate in a particular sport.
        • Your friends may all be dancers so it may be much easier to succeed with the encouragement of your friends
        • Or they may think that a particular sport is rubbish so they may encourage you not to participate in that particular sport.
      • Role Models
        • A role model is someone whos actions are admired by others.
        • They are often in the media's spotlight for their actions causing them to inspire others.

        • Very few girls participate in cricket so it would be harder to play for a club whereas it wuld be easier for a male.
