Parents all want their children to shine on the sports field, yet there’s nothing that will dull a child’s sparkle more than having parents and spectators pressure them from the sidelines.
What children hear and see can have a marked impact on them for the rest of their sporting lives.
The Office of Sport is asking all NSW sporting organisations to get behind the Let Kids Be Kids campaign. Join the movement, and stamp out bad adult behaviour at kids’ sport.
They have also created this great poster with tips for adults at kids’ sport.
There is another excellent website Play By The Rules. There are lots of information for your club at the bottom and a video with captions (click on CC to turn it on)
