Abstract: 
To design and write a book on chapters pertaining to a variety of sports for children and adolescents to enjoy the process of being physically active.

Background
The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM, 2015) states that a sedentary lifestyle is one of the major risk factors for obesity and cardiovascular disease. Therefore, physical activity is essential and it starts from a young age. Children have to be exposed to a variety of sports, games and activities. ACSM recommends 60 minutes daily of physical activity for children and adolescents. If children are unable to accumulate 60 minutes in day, they can begin with a lower duration and subsequently increasing the duration slowly as they progress over the months. The following chapters are written and designed by our experts in their special area of work and sport that will provide a deeper understanding and greater insight to sports and exercise in general, from a recreational perspective to a competitive level. Each chapter will reveal the history, background, basic rules of the sport, and how to implement modified games during PE lessons. The chapters also provide PE educators, coaches and parents with necessary tools to teach the sport.
