Hey Canners!

It’s NSPCC’s Parents in Sport Week!

Parents play a key part in helping and encouraging Children to get active and to play sport. I know we’ll be among the parents across the country by the side of pitches, swimming pools and Athletics tracks this weekend watching and supporting our kids do their thing!

The Youth Sport Trust has identified Parents as one of the key groups that need to be engaged and encouraged, so in turn they can support their children into getting active. And they have developed a portal for parents to help children reach both their sporting and academic potential.

And it’s not just about being the taxi service to and from their events - it’s about providing positive influences and encouragement to help children overcome the barriers to them getting involved - whether they are physical or mental hurdles.

Can you help Children get more active? Yes, you Can!
