Description: Importantly, this project has identified that the amount of physical activity a CYP-VI engages in (as measured by PAEE) has a positive significant relationship with emotional state – that is, the child’s emotional wellbeing. This finding points to multiple positive future outcomes for engaging and maintaining CYP-VI within sport and physical activity environments. Similarly, data highlight that CYP-VI spend a substantial amount of their free time engaged in sedentary activities, which has been demonstrated in numerous populations to have negative effects upon health-related outcomes, quality of life, and even life expectancy.
