Sport clubs has identified that they having a high average age of their boards and has difficulties inrecruiting young people. Participation and influence is one of the sport’s purposes, but the concepts areambiguous when young people has a different meaning for the concepts than sport has. If young peopleare excluded from boards the sport clubs will not fulfill their most important purpose and developmenttend to decreases. This study has studied the motives of young people to engage in sport boards and whatperceptions chairman of the sports associations have about young organization leaders. By interviews withyoung organization leaders and chairmans of various sports clubs have problems with the lack of youngpeople in sports boards surveyed identified. The study aims to inform what motivate and what experiencesfrom board appointments young people have and find out what basic assumptions chairmans have ofyoung people. The results show that young people sitting in a sports board says that they have chosen toengage in the work of the board because of to be involved in the development of sport. They think it is funand good experience for future jobs. Lack of time was anything negative to board work generated in. Thechairmen believe that it is good if there are younger people in the board, but it is difficult to recruit youngpeople to the board. It is important to have diversity in a board to develop and improve the sports club.Because of that, it was found that young people feel they are a part of the board but there is an lack ofknowledge of young organization leaders and these claims are explained by generational difference.
