Why stay in wrestling? : A quantitative study of keeping adolescents in Swedish wrestling clubs (English)
Abstract [en]

Swedish wrestling faces an issue, in that participation seems to decrease after the age of 9. The main purpose of this study is to examine factors that motivate, gives joy and supports adolescents to continue wrestling, with the aim of providing insights that can be useful when striving to retain participant numbers among young wrestlers. The study employs a quantitative method, using a survey to collect empirical data from active wrestlers aged 13-16. The survey yielded 82 responses, which were analyzed through the use of SPSS. The results indicate that friendship, a sense of community, and a desire to perform well during practice sessions and competitions are the most prominent factors listed by the respondents of the study. Furthermore, the study did not find any big differences in the results depending on age or gender. Recommendations for future research include studying wrestlers who are no longer active and investigating whether there is a relationship between their decision to quit and a lack of the produced factors identified within this thesis
