British Orienteering are supporting Parents in Sport Week 2017

British Orienteering is supporting Parents in Sport Week, which takes place on Monday 2 to Sunday 8 October 2017. The week aims to showcase the valuable role parents play in facilitating young people’s enjoyment and development in their chosen sport.

Parents in Sport Week aims to encourage sports organisations and clubs to recognise and promote the positive and important role parents play in helping young people reach their full potential and enjoy their time playing sport.

The Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) will be publishing a list of all organisations who signed up on our website in early September to showcase the organisations that have pledged their support to the campaign.

The CPSU has a range of resources which are available for clubs to download and use to promote parental involvement in orienteering.
