Brunswick Byron Netball Association has teamed up with the Office of Sport to promote positive sideline behaviour at junior events through Shoosh for Kids Week.

The BBNA is encouraging all members to support the cause, with the aim of keeping kids playing sport by ending negative comments towards players, teams, coaches and referees from the sidelines.

Promoting Shoosh for Kids Week at our club with others across NSW means there is a consistent message, BBNA president Robyn Venn said.

‘We want junior games to be a positive, happy place for kids to enjoy themselves while being active,’ she said.

‘We want everyone, especially children, to continue their involvement in sport because it’s a fun and encouraging environment for everyone.

‘Most people do the right thing. However, the sports we are working with want to remind spectators that there is no place for negative comments in local sport,’ she said.

Reward good play by both teams with applause; if you can’t then ‘SHOOSH’!
