Shoosh for Kids
NORTH SHORE SOFTBALL ASK SPECTATORS TO KEEP COMMENTS POSITIVE THIS SEASON
North Shore Softball (NSDSA) has teamed up with the Office of Sport and Softball NSW to promote positive behaviour at junior sport, by supporting the Shoosh for Kids campaign.
NSDSA President, Andrew Cooper calls on all members to be proactive in ensuring the focus of junior sport is about kids having fun whilst getting active.
“Shoosh for Kids awareness week is running from 14 to 20 May and this is an important reminder for members to support the cause and be positive all season long,” Andrew Cooper said.
“We want our junior events to be a positive and happy place for kids so that they want to continue to participate in sport for many years to come.”
The awareness week is also a timely reminder to all spectators to support the coaches, officials and volunteers who make grassroots sport possible by offering their valuable time.
“We are extremely grateful for everyone’s contribution. Promoting Shoosh for Kids awareness week at our association, along with other clubs and associations ensures that there is a consistent message focused on positive behavior for children’s sport,” said Andrew Cooper
