Physical Education - Sample report

Sample report

The following sample report shows how one might go about investigating
participation rates.

This example based on a the worlds largest open water swim, an enormously
popular event which takes place during January in Victoria, Australia. It
is known as the Lorne Pier to Pub swim (). This swim attracts in excess of
3000 swimmers annually and has a number of participants who have swum more
than 10 times. Lorne is a popular summer holiday resort town. The intention
of this investigation is to identify some of the reasons that influence
people to attempt the swim, and to investigate the reasons people continue
to participate in this swim for a number of years.

This section would contain information similar to the activity you
undertook previously on the meaning of biosocial [1] factors. You would
need to design a set of survey or interview questions to investigate the
factors. You should then collate this data into the percentage influence of
each factor.

From your data you should be able to identify the range and relative
importance of the factors you identified. From knowledge that you have
gained in class and from reading, try to add some detail to these factors
and explain how they operate in this specific example. Try to make the
report very specific to this group of people or individual. Give details of
distances travelled or costs involved in the activity etc. explain how
health and fitness reasons influenced them to take up an activity.

The reasons identified for initial participation in the pier to pub swim
are:

* the personal challenge of completing a 1.2 km ocean swim

* the swimming club that they are involved with had a group of people
participating

* took up swimming to improve fitness

* introduced by being a member of the surf club

* introduced by friends

* the swim team at school use it as a training swim

* staying in Lorne over the holidays and decided to try it out

* live in the area and decided to try it

* read about it in the paper and decided to try it

* saw the coverage on the evening news and decided to try it
