    Sex - Some sports are still considered male sports and so it is sometimes harder for women to get involved in these sports (e.g. Rugby and football)

    Promoting involvment in physical activity: positive and negative influential factors - gender Gender Girls are still seen to be playing sports that are 'girls only' and boys are playing traditional 'male' sports. Hopefully this is changing. There are still more boys than girls involved in regular physical activity. In 1990 there were three times as many boys as girls in sport. This is now changing. Females now have the same dollars in terms of grants and scholarships (e.g. AIS scholarships). Traditionally, for women in sport there has been: less funding fewer sporting scholarships lower prize money fewer sports offered fewer coaching and administration roles stereotyping that restricted women to certain sports less parental encouragement less media attention lack of role models fewer facilities available
