In the first week of October, Kent Sport will be supporting Parents in Sport Week to celebrate the valuable role played by parents, guardians and carers in encouraging children’s participation in sport.
Led by the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU), the week-long drive to raise awareness of the ups and downs of parenting in youth sport is now in its third year, and is an opportunity to highlight the critical role of parents, and the influence they have in supporting their child’s activities. A positive relationship between parents and organisations can contribute to a child’s enjoyment, as well as the sustainability of voluntary community clubs.
Help us to spread the positive messages from this campaign, which challenges organisations and parents alike to consider their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
We have collected some of the best articles and resources we can find on this topic, and will be sharing more related news and events on social media. Please follow the links to ‘Involving and engaging parents’ and ‘Supporting your child in sport’ to find out more:
