Physical activity statistics for adolescent girls are not good. In the United States, only `10.9% of girls aged 12-17 engage in at least 60 minutes of daily physical activity (compared to 18.6 for boys). Low income is associated with less physical activity.
Girls of color, girls of lower socioeconomic status, and girls in urban and rural areas often enter sports later, participate in lower numbers, and drop out earlier than White girls, suburban girls, and girls from higher socioeconomic status.
Breast development and lack of a sports bra may contribute to lower participation of girls in sport, or cause them to drop out. 46% of girls avoided physical activity because of their breasts.
