Abstract: The central problem in this study was to identify the status of physical education programs, intramural programs, interscholastic programs and recreation programs for delinquent youth confined in eight juvenile correction schools in North Carolina. The literature reviewed in preparation of this study included material pertaining to definitions of juvenile delinquency, history of juvenile correction institutions, causes and characteristics of juvenile delinquency, organizational structure of training schools and physical activity programs. A questionnaire was constructed to obtain facts regarding the activity programs and was distributed to each physical education instructor employed by the Board of Juvenile Corrections. All questionnaires were returned. Check lists were constructed to expedite obtaining information concerning activities, equipment and facilities used in carrying out the physical education program. Various aspects of the program at each of the training schools were observed as well as an interview utilized to obtain pertinent information.
