Sport is the biggest movement in Sweden and among youth is seen as the most important and one of the most prestigious leisure-time activities. Riksidrottsförbundet (RF) is the main organization of the Swedish sport movement. It receives funding from the government in order to represent and develop the Swedish sports clubs. The government’s choice to support sport within RF happens at the expense of other sports, for example skateboarding. Many youths today choose to engage in sport and/or physical activities outside the club activities. This study aims to map and analyze sport and physical activities within and outside the club activities, among ninth graders (15-16 year) in one school in Umeå kommun. Fifty-six pupils, in three classes participated in the survey and their answers are the result of this study. The result showed a broad amount of different sport and physical activities among the youths. Many youths quit their involvement within sport club activities in order to engage in sport and/or physical activities outside the club activities. The survey also showed differences in the youths motives of sport and/or physical activities within and outside the club activities.
