Parents in Sport Week
When is it? 1-7 October 2018
What is it? A national awareness raising campaign.
“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.
Gosforth RFC are a grass roots rugby club for all ages boys and girls are welcome from 6 years to 17 years where they can then progress to play senior rugby, we want children to enjoy their rugby experience every Sunday, our qualified coaches are all rugby people who have played the game or in some cases are still playing for the club on a Saturday, they have a wealth of Knowledge to pass on to the children and encourage them to be the best they can be in a fun positive environment. We also encourage all parents/grandparents/carers to come along and support the children and to get involved to build a closer relationship with the club Kick off the week with an event for parents or a fun competition for all the family.

Talking about the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit
The Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) is a partnership between the NSPCC, Sport England, Sport Northern Ireland and Sport Wales.
The Unit was founded in 2001, following a series of high profile cases, to work with UK Sports Councils, National Governing Bodies (NGBs), County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) and other organisations to help them minimise the risk of child abuse during sporting activities.
