Making such “smart combinations” can be facilitated and promoted, by making study and work environments “sport friendly”, and by making sport environments “study, work and family friendly”. Additionally, sport activity anchors and enablers within people’s social network play a key role in motivating and empowering people to sustain sport participation during the transition to adulthood, as they stimulate and facilitate sport participation. Significant others, institutions or associated professionals that people encounter during the transition to adulthood and sport providers could be stimulated and facilitated to act as such sport activity enablers and anchors. Firstly, significant others could be facilitated in motivating and enabling their partner, child, father, neighbour or friend, by offering easily and openly accessible sport concepts that enable them to simply invite others to join sport activities. Secondly, institutions or associated professionals that people encounter during the transition to adulthood, specifically when they experience major life events, could be stimulated to act as activity anchors and enablers, motivating and facilitating people to practise sport. For example, health care professionals, teachers, civil servants or employers might be the right person, on the right place and time, to deliver the right message (i.e., making people aware of the possibilities and benefits of practising sport given their personal situation). Lastly, sport providers could be enabling and anchoring people to sustain sport participation, by employing well targeted (i.e., based on the occurrence of life events) marketing and communication strategies. This way, people are made aware of and attracted to participate in excising sport opportunities that are available to them and fit their new life situation.
