2nd – 8th October 2017

Parents are key to a child’s life-long involvement in sport

The IABA have teamed up with over 100 sports organisations in Ireland and the UK to promote Parents in Sport Week which is running 2nd October 2017 – 8th October 2017 and would like our clubs to promote the positive and supporting role parents play in sport.

As you are all aware parents play a critical role within youth sport, without their support and involvement youth sport would not survive and our future Olympians would not exist.

We are asking our clubs around the country to help us promote the positive and important role parents play in helping children reach their full potential. To do this, they can:

  • Work with parents to reflect on the demands they’re encountering and identify strategies to manage the demands on parents
  • Take some time out to show your club values the parents input into helping your club grow
  • Promote Parents in Sport week on your social media platforms using #sportsparents
  • Print off some posters for your clubs thanking parents for the role they play in the club
