Fysisk aktivitet och idrott för vuxna individer i Västerbottens län – möjligheter och utmaningar för en framtida aktivitetskatalog. (Physical activity and sports for adults in the county of Västerbotten – opportunities and challenges for a future activity directory). Bachelor Essay in Swedish. Umeå: Umeå university, Department of Education.
This paper originates from the need to organize all physical activities in the county of Västerbotten. In collaboration with the sports association of Västerbotten a future project will later be made to gather all these activities in one place. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to analyze different sports clubs in the county of Västerbotten and their range of activities. Further, the purpose was also to assess the need of the sports clubs to develop the accessibility of their activities for adults in the county. The future aim of this study is that the results will compose a foundation for an activity directory which will increase the accessibility of different sports clubs and facilitate for individuals who practise some sort of exercise. Because of the limited research on this area, this study could be of interest for individuals, associations as well as for future research. To get the results interviews were carried out with nine different sports clubs and companies. The interviewees all had managing roles and good insights within their respective company. The respondents were asked about their opinions regarding the need of an activity directory and its possible benefits and disadvantages. The results show an interest for the directory from the majority of the respondents and that one of the primary benefits is that it provides marketing for the sports clubs and companies who choose to participate. One disadvantage with the activity directory could be that people with limited access to the Internet will be excluded, but as long as the marketing is good and the design is simple and well structured, the activity directory may have good future prospects.
