    • Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
    • Encourage children to participate, do not force them.
    • Focus on the child's efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.

    • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition.
    • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate skilful performances by all participants.
    • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
    • Respect officials' decisions and teach children to do likewise.
