report cover

This report from 2022 focuses on children and young people’s perceptions and experiences of organised sport in South Australia. Based on over 1,500 responses to an online survey in 2021, it complements my wider engagement with South Australian children and young people in relation to their broader attitudes and ideas about physical activity and experiences of playing sport.

This report also furthers the Commissioner’s work in promoting Article 31 of the
UNCRC covered in my Press Play report, which provides a series of recommendations on ways to activate young people’s health and wellbeing through play.

Noting that the importance of play is recognised for young children but rarely for teenagers, Press Play not only highlights how young people define play, it also
identifies a range of strategies to address barriers to play being experienced by children and young people at the individual, community and systemic levels.
