The focus this year continues to be on highlighting the valuable role parents play – and the positive influence they have – in ensuring young people develop to their full potential and enjoy their time playing sport.

To help you get involved in the week and show your support for parents, we've developed a range of resources which you can download and use to promote parental involvement in sport.

Aims of Parents in Sport Week

We encourage sports organisations and clubs to recognise and promote the positive and important role parents play in helping children reach their full potential. To do this, they can:

  • work with parents to reflect on the demands they're encountering and then identify strategies to manage those demands
  • encourage sports clubs and coaches to take time to show they value parents, want parental input and are grateful for what parents can do

Parents play a pivotal role in sport and young people depend on their support and encouragement.
