Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) launches positive parental behaviour in sport toolkit

Child Protection in Sport Unit

Parents often play a vital part in supporting their children to take part in sport.

They play many positive roles and are often the backbone of sports activities at a local level.

However many sports organisations and clubs have struggled to address the problem of poor parental/spectator behaviour in junior sport.

The Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) have launched a positive parental behaviour in sport toolkit to help promote the importance of positive role parents can have.

More information about this initiative can be found here:

My Magic Sports Kit

This video link shows several children involved in different sports describing how the behaviour of parents/spectators deteriorates when they wear their ‘magic sports kit’ – i.e. when they compete.

They talk about a range of bad adult behaviours and how these negatively impact on them.

They then describe and promote positive behaviour.
