CPSU Parents in Sport Week

3rd October 2018

A national awareness raising campaign, Parents in Sport Week is a chance to showcase your organisation or club’s creativity and build positive relationships with
parents and carers.

Paul Stephenson, NSCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) said

“Parents, through their support, encouragement and understanding, play a pivotal role in supporting their child’s participation, success and fun when playing sport. It’s essential that sports clubs communicate regularly with parents so that both coach and parent work towards the same goals.”

We want more parents to be a part of their child’s sporting life but we need your help to reach them. You can do this by working with and supporting parents through your club or organisation, letting them know how valuable their contribution to youth sport is and encouraging them to get involved. Kick off the week with an event for parents or a fun competition for all the family.

Take advantage of the CPSU’s extensive advice and resources to build closer relationships with parents and carers at your club or organisation, and use the hashtags
#ParentsInSportWeek2018 and #InvolvingParents to show your support and spread the word online.
