Lots of children do not shower after school sport, says study Watch
Not a surprise. When I was at school those boys who did not want to shower tended to miss a lot of PE with conditions/illnesses/injuries and have a note from their parents, or do the towel dance when changing.
What happens/happened for you in your school?
You'd have a shower after a Rugby match on a Saturday, but that was about it.
Maybe in some schools with working showers and ample time to use them it could be a self-consciousness thing, but in other places it really is a lack of time or availability.
I don't think there's any need for it. The embarrassment alone is a good enough reason not to do it. It also eats into lesson time, forcing them to either shorten the PE lesson or have kids late for other lessons.
Although we did have showers available many did not bother as we were probably going to be late for next period.
I was lazy in PE anyways so I never even broke a sweat haha.

Completely agree with the time thing, as well. There was just NEVER enough time, and then the teacher who had students swanning into the classroom over the next 20 minutes used to get really pissed off.
The PE teachers tried to clamp down on the lateness and gave us, I think, 3-5 minutes to get changed and if people weren't changed in that time they'd come into the room and start making you hurry.
Ah, such good memories...
