Abstract [en]

Pupils, and most of all girls, drop out of organized sports in the ages 13-18. The purpose of this survey was to study which motives girls had to proceed in sports together with differences between certain groups. This study was based on a survey which included 86 responses from girls active in sports in 10 different compounds. The results showed that the most frequent motives to do sports were to have fun and to feel well. Differences showed were that the ones who trained more often and the ones who practiced more than one sport found that to work hard was an important motive, compared to the other groups. The ones that trained more often also found that to have fun was an important motive in difference to the group which trained in less extent. The organizational factors that could influence on the girls’ exercise were the coaches’ motivational techniques and the athletes’ experiences of competition in a negative way.
