AFL Kids First

Today’s parents have an important role in the delivery and support of sporting activities for their own and other children. With it comes a clear responsibility to act in a constructive and encouraging manner at all times.

Barracking and wanting your child to perform well is human nature, but it is critical that this should be done in a responsible manner avoiding the ugly parent syndrome at all times.

The basic principles of AFL Kids First are to remind parents that:

  • Sport for children is a vital part of their  growing up.
  • Children like to win, but more importantly, they want to have fun.
  • Parents need to set the right example at the sports ground, not just at home.
  • Parents should be proud of their child’s efforts irrespective of the result.
  • Sport is important to children’s self esteem.
