Sports Values - Our Promise To Kids
- on July 23, 2010
As a member of the Kansas Recreation and Park Association, the Lawrence Parks and Recreation, as well as member agencies across the state support KRPA’s Our Promise to Kids, which has been developed as a special project of the KRPA, the Kansas Youth Sports Task Force and the National Alliance for Youth Sports. The project provides youth sports values, serving as the foundation for how youth programming is administered.
Our Promise to Kids is designed to provide coaches, parents and participants with the knowledge that their local park and recreation department and youth organizations care about each child involved in youth sports programs and are committed to making youth sports better for children in Kansas.
In the support of good sportsmanship, a list of sideline suggestions have been created to help shape the behavior of adults when watching a youth sports activity.
