    Promoting involvement in physical activity -> Intrinsic/extrinsic influences on fitness attitudes -> Sports participation categories Sports participation categories We can classify sports into a number of categories: The relevance of electronic and print media coverage in relation to encouraging participation varies. The media can really do three things for a sport. increase participation and interest decrease participation and interest have no apparent effect The intense media saturation of basketball approximately 12 years ago certainly had an immediate influence on participation rates. These appear to have peaked now and there has also been a decline in spectator interest at games and on the television. In fact, basketball has switched its season from winter, where it had to compete with AFL football, to the summer season where it has relatively little competition from similar sports. This move appears to have been successful with soccer also moving its season so that it is not in direct competition with the whole of the AFL season. Making use of the Age 'Green Guide' is a good way to collect data on how much media coverage various sports receive in any given week. You might choose to look at a specific sport and one other to see what sort of time is allotted. You might also look at the NEWS or a sports program such as SPORTS TONIGHT to see how much time a sport gets on the screen.
