Netball Australia supports the Let Kids be Kids campaign, addressing poor sideline behaviour – largely at junior sport.
The behaviour of people on the sidelines of junior sport can have a profound impact on kids participation and enjoyment of sport.
“The more persistent the parents on the sideline are, the worse it becomes for the kids who are out their playing,” says Australian Diamond, Caitlin Thwaites.
“If it is persistent across the whole game, it’s really hard to be able to shrug that off and at the end of the game, forget about it because you’ve been constantly berated by these people on the sideline. It’s hard.”
