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. Typically there is an awareness week held early in the sports season, however due to the current environment with various differences on sport currently, clubs and associations will have the option to promote the Shoosh for Kids message at their convenience. 

The campaign message is relevant all season long, so consider using the FREE resources (by clicking on the link to the right) to promote the importance of positivity to your members, now and all season long. 

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)
