Parents in Sport Week

Parents in Sport logoBuckley Girls Gymnastic Club is supporting Parents in Sport Week 2019 to make gymnasts’ training a positive experience.

This year’s campaign, run by the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) which is a partnership including the NSPCC and Sport Wales, encourages parents to make the Sports Parents Promise that shows a commitment to supporting children in their sporting life. Make your promise here.

There is lots of information available on the CPSU website which shows how parents can support their children in all sports.

We’d like to thank our parents for their ongoing support in the club.
