Make the Sports Parents Promise

June 5, 2019

The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) has launched the Sports Parents Promise as part of their annual awareness raising campaign - Parents in Sport Week which takes place between the 7 – 13 October 2019.

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. 

From today, parents can make the Promise online and in return, they’ll get a certificate they can show off to the world and on social media to help promote positive parenting in sport.

Show your child you support them taking part in sport by making the promise at  and spread the word using #SportsParents
