The acceleration of contemporary world events, global social, political and economic transformations that have changed traditions and ideologies into new forms adopted by young generations have also brought new content, methods and skills to the field of physical education and sport that have reformed the system and are able to respond to solving unknowns that have pushed to another stage the practice of sports activities.
The development of information technology has attracted the lack of interest of young people for movement through forms of practice, known as sometimes unattractive.
The purpose of this study is to argue the rethinking of the composition of physical education programs, the discovery of solid evidence based on the reasons for practicing physical sports, the presentation of models to follow and the adaptation of basic structures to human evolution.
Assumption. In this study we tried to find out what are the elements that could motivate students to practice physical sports.
The results we reached after the study confirmed that more and more students prefer to spend their free time with activities other than sports and those who still prefer movement choose activities that offer fun, play and recreation.
