Leeds Rhinos Foundation is supporting NSPCC’s new Positive Parents initiative and is encouraging parents to pledge support and share their promises via social media during Rhinos Challenge 2019.
Backed by the RFL, the scheme has been announced ahead of the Parents in Sport Week, with the aim of ensuring all children have a safe and enjoyable experience of sport- something which is also encouraged through the charity’s own Rhinos Respect campaign.
With more than 6,200 players, coaches and parents heading to Butlins Skegness this weekend to take part in Rhinos Challenge, the UK’s biggest junior rugby league festival, Leeds Rhinos Foundation are helping to promote the important messages of both schemes to ensure that the event is an enjoyable and positive experience for all involved.
Sam Horner, Community Clubs Development Officer at Leeds Rhinos Foundation, said: “Our aim at Leeds Rhinos Foundation is to promote, at all times, a respectful and all-inclusive environment that is not intimidating or hostile for families, players and referees.
As a positive sports parent, you will make these promises to your child:
– I promise to make sure the club we choose together is safe and fun
– I promise to listen to you if you have any concerns about your sport
– I promise to make sure that I always support you and your teammates in a positive way
