About Shoosh for Kids


Shoosh for Kids is a collaborative effort between the Office of Sport and State Sporting Organisations to promote positive behaviour to their members, clubs and associations. The general rule is, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything. 

Shoosh for Kids' focus is to keep sport focused on fun so that kids continue to enjoy participating in sport. 

The purpose of the campaign is to support grassroots sports in providing positive environments for their members, whilst also addressing issues which arise from poor behaviour including: 

  • Abuse to officials 
  • Reduced volunteer numbers 
  • Reduced participation rates (due to poor experiences/non-enjoyment/too competitive)

Sign up to support the campaign. Together we can keep sport fun and kids participating!

Evaluation data has shown that 95% of participants intended to engage with Shoosh for Kids on an annual basis, demonstrating the value of the campaign to the sector and its participants.
