Using the acronym PLACES, Going Places guides the user through this process: Preferences - what do you like to do? ; Leisure, sport, and fitness activities - here's what you might do ; Awareness - how can you find out where and how to do it? ; Choices - how do you decide what activity to participate in? ; Exploration - how can you get the most out of it? ; Skill development - how can you get better at it?
