Abstract [en]

Girls with foreign background is the group that is most left outside the sports movement in Sweden and the ones with the least sports habit. Sports assumed to provide an arena for integration that these girls are being left outside from. The Swedish sports movement has adapted the conditions for them as a way to encourage them to participate in sports, but there are still lots of girls with foreign background that stands outside the sports movement. One input that the Swedish National Association has done for children and young adults is to adopt the Drive-in-sport, which can work as an entrance to the sports movement. The aim of the study is therefore to investigate which barriers, motivators and requests girls in Sweden with foreign background have to participate in Drive-in-sports. Eight interviews have been done to girls who do not participate in Drive-in-sports. The results shows that the main reasons for the girls to not participate are: lack of time, homework, babies, don't have friends to go with and that they think they will be left outside because of their veil. The conclusion is that the girls are looking for community and continuity which the sport clubs can offer them but the Drive-in-sports probably can not.
