In South Africa, few children and adolescents belong to sports clubs, and adolescent participation in organised sport has steadily declined, especially in recent years. Participation levels in organised sport have decreased during late childhood and, more increasingly, as adolescents grow older. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the participation of secondary school learners aged 14 to 16 years in organised sport. The study was a quantitative and descriptive, cross-sectional design. The study sample was 329 conveniently sampled secondary school learners, males, and females, aged 14 to 16 years from three state schools in Cape Town, Western Cape Province.
