Shoosh for Kids is a collaborative effort between the Office of Sport and sector partners to encourage positive spectator behaviour at junior sport. The Office of Sport provides access to free digital resources to raise awareness and promote the very simple message – if you don’t have anything nice to say, shoosh for kids.
Keep it positive. Keep it fun. Keep kids coming back to junior sport!
The Shoosh for Kids Message
Shoosh for Kids isn’t about staying completely silent, it’s just about making sure we’re all positive. Our messages across the campaign run across five key themes:
Overarching: Think before you speak
General participation: Keep it positive. Keep it fun.
Volunteer appreciation: Remember, volunteers run kids sport.
Respecting the officials: Respect the referee
Supporting the coaches: Let coaches do the coaching.
Signing up to support the Shoosh for Kids campaign is the perfect way to let your communities and stakeholders know where you stand on poor spectator behaviour. The Office of Sport provide a toolkit of assets help you promote your involvement, including posters, videos, social tiles, EDM banners and copy.
In 2022, the winter campaign for Shoosh for Kids will run across the month of May.
