Abstract

The central object of this chapter is to consider briefly some of the links which exist between families, the growth of extra-curricular activity as a formal and informal pedagogic practice, and young people’s sport participation. More specifically, we examine: (i) the growth of extra-curricular activity under conditions of increased privatisation in education and as a part of the ideology of ‘good parenting’; (ii) the importance of social inequality in family life for childhood sport socialisation; and (iii) how the formation of sporting habituses during childhood and youth may be associated with extra-curricular activity in schools.
