Shoosh for Kids
Shoosh for Kids, a statewide initiative to encourage positive behaviour at junior sport, is being held from October 23 to 29.
The event is a collaborative effort between the Office of Sport and State Sporting Organisations to promote positive behaviour to their members, clubs and associations.
The general rule is, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
Not only does the campaign support grassroots sports in providing positive environments for their members, it also aims to address issues which arise from poor behaviour at junior sport, including: abuse to officials and players; reduced volunteer numbers; reduced participation rates (due to poor experiences/non-enjoyment/focus on winning).
The Manly Warringah Little Athletics Centre supports this initiative.
Encouraging participation, fitness and fun has always been a cornerstone of the centre’s operation.
