Sports Participation in America 2008
Definitive Source for Sport Participation in America
Sports and fitness activities are treasured by many millions of Americans. From little league to snowboarding, or simply going on a jog, Americans participate in sports and fitness in a variety of ways. Yet, Americans interests in these activities are continually changing. For instance, as baby boomers grow older, participation in fitness increases, shown in the doubling of health club memberships from 1990 to 2007. Baby boomers are just one of many factors that contribute to change in popularity of a particular sport or fitness activity. And with the change in popularity, comes a change in consumer spending.
This report offers the most up-to-the-minute data and analysis on over 90 different sports and activities in categories like team sports, fishing, and water sports.
