Parents in Sport Week 2021

In partnership with the NSPCC and the Child Protection in Sport Unit, this year’s Parents in Sport Week focuses on giving parents the information and tools they need to be part of the bigger safeguarding picture in sport.

This year, we’re aiming Parents in Sport Week directly at parents whose children take part in the sports we work with, to give them everything they need to be part of the bigger safeguarding picture in sport.

How to get involved

If you’re a parent

The best people to get parents involved in their child’s sport are fellow parents! That’s why we need your help to spread the word about keeping children safe in sport and encourage other parents to get involved.

You can help support this year’s campaign by:

  • signing-up as a Parents in Sport Week campaigner
  • taking an e-learning course and learn how to keep your child safe
  • share our assets on social media to help other parents
  • talk about Parents in Sport Week on social media by using #ParentsinSportWeek and tagging @EnglandGolf, @NSPCC and @TheCPSU

Monday 4 October: Support and guidance for parents

This #ParentsinSportWeek, we want to support parents to keep their child safe in sport and we have some helpful resources to do just that.

Tuesday 5 October: Support your child in sport

Get some practical advice and resources to support your children and make sure you become the best role model you can be.

Wednesday 6 October: What do the children say?

We hear from children themselves about what they want from parents and adults when they play the game, making it more enjoyable for all.

Thursday 7 October: How can a Club Welfare Officer (CWO) help you?

We need every club to ensure they are safeguarding children. Find out why and how a Club Welfare Office can protect children and young people.

Friday 8 October: Relationship with your children’s coach

The relationship between your child and their coach is very important and we can help you maximise the potential.

Saturday 9 October: Keeping your children safe online

Is your child on social media? Do they use it to speak to their golf friends, coach or others? We are here to help you keep your children safe online.

Sunday 10 October: Celebrate children and parents

Let us know why your children love being involved in golf and all your success stories as we bring Parents in Sport Week to a conclusion.

For this campaign to be a success, we need you to get involved so please join in by signing up as a Parents in Sport Week campaigner, sharing our content on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or by using the hashtag #ParentsInSportWeek.

Thank you for helping us make golf a safe sport for children across the country!
