School playground strategies to promote structured activities

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

A structured physical activity is an organised activity characterised by specified locations, time schedules and adult supervision. Structured activities can also include team sports, racquet sports and fitness classes. There have been a number of school playgrounds that have used specified playground or activity locations (e.g. playground markings, physical structures, allocated physical activity spaces, activity zones), teacher-led activities (e.g. fitness breaks, physical education activities in the playground) and games/sports equipment to facilitate structured activities within the school playground. This chapter will provide an overview of such strategies within the school playground context.
