Next week is ‘Parents In Sport Week’

Hi Everybody,

Parents in Sport Week 2020 starts on Monday 5th October.

Parents in Sport week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the importance of parents’ involvement in youth sport.

This years’ theme for Parents in Sport Week is: “Let’s talk about keeping children safe in Sport”

The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit is trying to reach as many parents as possible with their information and advice, with the hope that it can open up a dialogue with coaches, clubs and children about how everyone can contribute to safeguarding in sport.

As part of the campaign, they’re asking sports parents to make the Sports Parents Promise. 

The Promise outlines what makes a great sports parent. We hope this will give parents an understanding of how their contribution to their child’s sport helps to make it a safer place.

We’re asking parents to sign up and make the Promise to their child by the end of Parents in Sport Week 2020.

Why not advertise the week on your club website and encourage your parents to sign up? There’s some great resources on there too!
