Shoosh for Kids awareness week fosters positive spectator behaviour and runs over May 14–20.
The state government’s Office of Sport wants clubs and organisations to sign-up as supporters.
‘We want junior games to be positive, happy places for kids to enjoy themselves while making new friends and being active,’ Office of Sport chief executive Matt Miller said.
‘Promoting Shoosh for Kids week at local clubs and associations across NSW means there is a consistent message for grassroots sport.
‘We want to ensure that all players, officials and spectators have a positive experience, and we want everyone, especially children, to continue their involvement in sport because it’s a fun and encouraging environment.
‘Most people do the right thing. However, we want to remind spectators that there is no place for negative comments in local sport,’ he said.
The government will continue to release videos supporting the campaign.
