It evaluates the participation of Czech young people (aged 10–19) in sport and physical activities (organized as well as unorganized) in the context of their lifestyles, psychosocial, social and cultural aspects as well as physical performance, comparing the engagement of Czech young people in sports with European overviews as well as earlier national studies from 2000, 2006 and 2014/15. Using the COMPASS methodology, it identifies and evaluates the trends in the changes in sports interests and other free-time activities in which the young people engage, assesses the physical performance of the young comparing it to similar data from 1966, 1987 and 2006.
