The Youth-Physical Activity Towards Health (Y-PATH) intervention programme is a school based Physical Education (PE) intervention which aims to improve physical activity (PA) levels of first year post-primary students through educating them on the importance of PA for health, improving levels of motivation, developing fundamental movement skill levels, and generating a supportive environment for PA. Currently a randomised control trial in 20 second level schools in the greater Dublin area is underway.
