dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research study was to discuss the extent to which sport and physical activity could have an impact on the prevention of crime and anti-social behaviour among adolescent females. The research was carried out on Llanrumney Youth Centre, which runs youth projects in partnership with the national charity Catch 22. This research included volunteering within the project to make observations for several weeks leading to interviews with seven females who regularly attend the project. The results of these interviews were then analysed using a thematic method. It became evident when analysing the interviews and the key themes which emerged that boredom and the social ‘norms’ of the area were the main reasons for individuals engaging in criminal or anti-social acts. The results of the study generally supported the literature associated with how sport and physical activity can impact crime and anti-social behaviour. However, a number of new themes associated with the importance of social groups and the motives for doing sport and physical activity emerged from the research, suggesting areas for future development of literature. Keywords: Anti-social behaviour, ‘At-risk’ youths, Crime, Females, Physical Activity,Sport.
