New Study Show Parents See Power of Sport

New research from the Australian Sports Commission shows that nearly all parents can see the health and social benefits of having their children involved in sport. The finding was revealed in the Market Segmentation Study for Parents which explores parents’ attitudes and behaviours towards sport and sport clubs. The study was conducted to get a better understanding of the decision-making process that parents go through when selecting sporting activities or involvement in sport clubs for their children.
