Parents in Sport Week 2019

Parents in Sport week is an annual campaign, taking place this year from 7th- 13th October 2019.

Cerebral Palsy Sport are sharing some of the feedback received from parents at our events through #CPVoices as well as getting sharing awareness about the annual campaign.

The Parents in Sport Week campaign looks to increase positive parental involvement in youth sport and, by doing so, improve the experiences of young people across the UK. 

This year’s aim by the NSPCC is to get parents to make the Sports Parents Promise to encourage their child’s safe enjoyment of sport. 

Cerebral Palsy Sport have been encouraging the parents of it’s participants to make the promise.

The Promise outlines what makes a great sports parent and allows parents to acknowledge the contribution they make to their child’s enjoyment of sport, and allows clubs, coaches and other sports organisations to really get parents on board and take an interest in their child’s sporting life. 

The promise is supported by important and helpful information parents need to help keep their child safe in sport and support them in the best way they can.
