Make the Sports Parent Promise

Parents in Sport Week 2019 starts tomorrow and we’re asking parents to make a promise to their child to make sure they have safe and enjoyable experiences of sport.

The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) has launched the Sports Parents Promise as part of its annual awareness raising campaign, Parents in Sport Week. The Promise outlines all the ways in which parents can be the best sports parents they can be, by ensuring their child has safe and enjoyable experiences of sport.

Parents can make the Promise online and, in return, they’ll be directed to vital information about how to keep their child safe in sport. They can also download a certificate of their own to share on social media or print out and stick up on the fridge. Show your child you support them taking part in sport by making the Promise HERE and spread the word on social media using the hashtags #SportsParents and #ParentsInSportWeek2019.


This 3-point promise highlights how you can be a great sports parent. You can click each point for advice and tips on ways you can fulfil your promise.
