To keep your childs interested and enjoying sport, make it a positive experience for them. Focus on having fun, having a go and being active, rather than winning or losing.

You, as parents, can help your child develop a positive sporting attitude by praising the team’s or othre children’s efforts, even if they don’t win. Point out to your child how important is to try and do their best.

Make sure your comments from the sidelines are always positive, and don’t criticise children who make mistakes. Never abuse a team, umpire or other players.
