NSWRL and Hilder throw support behind Shoosh for Kids

The NSWRL and NSW Sky Blues Coach Kylie Hilder have thrown support behind Shoosh for Kids a NSW Government initiative that runs throughout May.

Just like the NSWRL #RESPECT Round, Shoosh for Kids urges spectators across all sports to keep sideline behaviour positive and involves all Community Rugby League clubs to promoting positive spectator behaviour so that kids want to continue to play sport.

NSW Sky Blues Coach Kylie Hilder said parents should encourage kids when they are playing.

“There’s nothing better than hearing a parent cheering for their child and the child seeing their parents are happy for them no matter how they perform on the field,” Hilder said.

Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said we all have a role to play in ensuring sport is a positive experience for kids.

“Sport should be fun and the best way we can do this is to keep spectator comments and behaviour positive so that kids want to keep playing and enjoying the benefits that it offers,” Mr Ayres said.

“We’re urging sports clubs across NSW to sign up to the Shoosh for Kids campaign and keep sport fun for our junior players this winter.

“The message is simple, if you don’t have anything positive to say, Shoosh for Kids.”

The program provides free resources to clubs and associations to share the message and help keep sport fun for junior players. For further information and to sign up to the campaign click here.
