Research Impact: Different policy-makers and researchers have called for a better exploitation of sports clubs health promotion potential. A previous literature review (MacFadyen et al., 2018) has shown that only 3 health promotion interventions in sports clubs have been rigorously evaluated. The present study describes the protocol of a mixed method hybrid type 3 design for the evaluation of a theory based health promotion intervention in sports clubs. This study is an attempt to answer the challenge of the evaluation of multi-level and multi-strategies interventions grounded in the settings based approach.
