Shoosh for Kids week for summer sports was held from 23 to 29 October 2017.

Shoosh for Kids is a collaborative effort between the Office of Sport and State Sporting Organisations to promote positive behaviour to their members, clubs and associations. The general rule is, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. 

The purpose of the campaign is to support grassroots sports in providing positive environments for their members, whilst also addressing issues which arise from poor behaviour including:

  • Abuse to officials
  • Reduced volunteer numbers
  • Reduced participation rates (due to poor experiences/non-enjoyment/too competitive)

The recent summer season saw the Office of Sport work with seven State Sporting Organisations and over 250 Councils, clubs, associations and schools to spread the campaign message. If you'd like to promote Shoosh for Kids year-round, you can still access a great range of resources by signing up below.
