Abstract [en]

This study was made in collaboration between Umeå University and Västerbotten sports

federation. The study was aimed to find out how the municipalities are working with various

issues in the sports field. A subject of interest for this study was to see if the municipalities

were implementing strategies in the sports field on determined goals by using policy

documents. Our study focused mostly on kids and youth that participate in organized sports in

Västerbotten. Other aspects of interest in the study were economics in sports, how youth

sports should be organized, and segregation in sports due to financial factors. The study was

based on seven interviews in four different municipalities in Västerbotten. The result of the

study showed a lack of working with determined goals in the sports field. Other clinical

findings in the study were that in youth’s opportunities to participate in organized sport

became a threat due to increasing costs; this may also increase segregation within the society.

We also found that municipalities were interested in practicing a youth sports organization

that would offer sports to a wide population. During our discussions with politicians and

workers in the municipalities we saw a desire to start working in a more goal oriented way.
