Teens & Sports Participation in America 2001

Teens & Sports Participation in America 2001

In the past decade, we have witnessed dramatic changes in the ways children express themselves through sports, fitness and outdoor activities. Teenage participation in pickup sports and games, ranging from sandlot baseball to backyard badminton, has suffered significant declines, while participation in free-form sports such as inline skating and skateboarding has soared. Some alternative sports have become so popular they should be called mainstream. Far more teenagers participated in skateboarding in 2000 than played baseball, and participants in both sports are predominately male. This report provides demographic and participation trend statistics on the 36 most popular sports, fitness and outdoor activities among teenagers. Of the 28 activities for which data exist for both 1990 and 2000, participation declined in 15 of them. When we factor in the 20% growth in the teenage population that occurred during the decade, we see that 21 of the 28 most popular sports actually lost ground in terms of attracting teenage participants. The youth market is important because it is huge. It is also important because it represents the future. 2001 Edition - [28 pages / PDF - 436k]
