Parents in Sport Week 1st - 7th October 2018

Sport Ireland will again be supporting the initiative Parents in Sport Week.

Parents in Sport Week takes place 1st – 7th October this year and Sport Ireland and the NSPCC/Sport NI want to reach more parents and clubs to spread the word about how beneficial parents can be to youth sport.

When is it?

1st -7th October 2018

What is it?

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. “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.” - Paul Stephenson, NSPCC

CPSU 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.
