Sport parents often get a bad rap. With plenty of bad-sport-parenting stories making headlines in recent years, it’s easy to see why. We all cringe when we hear about parents yelling from the sidelines or fighting in the stands.
However, these sorts of incidents don’t reflect the whole story. Most sports parents make positive contributions, and Parents in Sport Week gives them due recognition.
First conceived and promoted by the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) in the United Kingdom, Parents in Sport Week celebrates parents who help to make youth sport possible by registering their children, driving them to practices and games, providing emotional support, and more. #sportsparents #PISW
