CLUBS RALLY TOGETHER TO SUPPORT POSITIVITY AT KID’S SPORT

To celebrate Shoosh for Kids awareness week, the Office of Sport continues their series of online videos launched late last year to promote positive spectator behavior with messages from those most important – the kids.

Office of Sport Chief Executive, Matt Miller said Shoosh for Kids awareness week runs from 14 to 20 May and clubs and organisations are encouraged to sign-up as supporters.

“We want junior games to be positive, happy places for kids to enjoy themselves while making new friends and being active,” Mr Miller said.

“Promoting Shoosh for Kids week at local clubs and associations across NSW means there is a consistent message for grassroots sport.”

The Shoosh for Kids video series includes children across sports discussing why they enjoy playing sport and how negative feedback from spectators can impact their enjoyment of the game.

Office of Sport Chief Executive Matt Miller said the videos will be launched on the Office of Sport and sporting organisation’s websites and Facebook accounts leading up to and during the awareness week to remind spectators to positively support children and their team playing sport.

“We want to ensure that all players, officials and spectators have a positive experience, and we want everyone, especially children, to continue their involvement in sport because it’s a fun and encouraging environment,” Mr Miller said.

“Most people do the right thing. However, we want to remind spectators that there is no place for negative comments in local sport.”

Winter sports participating in Shoosh for Kids Week include AFL, Basketball, Football (soccer), Hockey, Netball, Rugby League and Rugby Union, with Softball, Swimming and Tennis encouraging their active clubs to continue the campaign message year round.
