2017 Sports, Fitness, and Leisure Activities Topline Participation Report

2017 Sports, Fitness, and Leisure Activities Topline Participation Report

Definitive Source for Sports Participation in America

Overview of The Topline Participation Report
Every year, the SFIA releases this participation topline summary that features data from the largest single source sports, fitness and leisure activity participation study in the country. We track participation in 120 sports, recreation & fitness activities. This is the industry's essential reference document for sports participation.

More Information on this Report
If there is only one report that you read every year from the SFIA it is this one.  The participation topline presents a very detailed look at the participation growth trends for 120 different sports and activities.  The data is presented in easy to read charts that feature one and 4 year variances. 


Highlights from the 2017 Report:

  • 2016 Inactivity saw modest drop, losing 0.1 Million, a 0.2% decrease, and maintaining a 27% rate, partly because of the population increase.
  • Baseball (18.1%), Ice Hockey (11.0%), Rugby (18.7%) and Swimming on a Team (26.9%) all saw significant one year increases in casual participation.
  • Gym memberships, traveling to take part in a sport or activity, winter sports, outdoor recreation, and individual sporting events all saw an increase in spending.
