St George Football Association (SGFA) and its member Clubs will be supporting the Shoosh for Kids Campaign on the weekend 19-21 May 2017.
Shoosh for Kids is a collaborative effort between Office of Sport and State Sporting Organisations to promote positive sideline behaviour to their members, clubs and associations. The Shoosh for Kids campaign is aimed at promoting positive sideline behaviour at junior sports events. 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 grass root sport to provide positive environment for their members, whilst assisting to address issues which arise from poor sideline behaviour including:
- Abuse to officials
- Reduced volunteer numbers
- Reduced participation rates (due to poor experiences/ non-enjoyment/ too competitive)
