Bulletin 9: Frequently reported sports

2016-2018 Physical Activity Monitor (Adult focus),

March 11, 2019

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute’s 2016-2018 Physical Activity Monitor explored Canadians’ participation in sport and found that 25% of adults, 18 years and older, report participating in sport (see Bulletin 1). The survey also asked about the nature of their participation, including the degree of structure of the environment, the use of coaching, training, and the level of competition (see Bulletin 8). In addition, sport participants were asked to volunteer the top four sports that they participate in, and this bulletin describes the findings.
