Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Physical education (PE) should represent an important component of children and youth total physical activity time due to its structured contents, regularity and delivery in the school environment, where most children can access it as a safe and enjoyable activity. However, due to structural and non-structural conditions, in recent years, many countries have experienced steady decreases in PE, especially in high-school students. The aim of this study is to explore innovative methods for increasing participation and engagement of students in PE. Methods:<\b>
Pen and pencil questionnaires followed by focus-groups were conducted in October-December 2017 on a sample of students grades 9, 10 and 11 from 3 high-schools in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Students were asked to comment about the quality and enjoyment of current PE classes, their needs and preferences and their potential contribution in the planning and development of future PE classes. Results:<\b>
Participants identified structural conditions (e.g. lack of proper gym or showers), organizational issues (e.g. PE class scheduling, having to share the gym) and evaluation system (e.g. too demanding indicators) as limits for attending and being active during PE. Teacher's performance in class and his/hers approach to evaluation were seen as important facilitators/barriers. Novelty, diversity and moderate intensity of activities were mentioned as important for more attractive PE. Conclusion:<\b>
Students can contribute to the planning and development of novel, more attractive PE classes. External funding details This project has been funded with support from the European Commission, Erasmus + Sport Programme. Project number: 2016-3210/001-00
