A key challenge for those developing sport programmes targeted at diverse young people is convincing their parents of the value of sport and recreation. Another key challenge is encouraging parents to become involved in their child’s participation and to know ways their child can become more active.
The Connect2sport Parents Guide to Sport aims to address some of these key challenges by:
- raising awareness of the benefits of sport and recreation
- outlining how parents can encourage and support their child’s participation
- show the different ways young people can be active.
The resource is designed to be downloaded and distributed by sport organisations when engaging diverse young people and their parents.
