In 2015 the Newcastle Junior Rugby League Association launched the Shoosh for Kids weekend, which originated from the New Zealand’s “Let kids be kids campaign” which received great support.

“Bringing the Shoosh for Kids Week to Western NSW means that regardless of the sport families will attend on the weekend they will get the same message ‘keep your comments positive or shoosh,” said Joanne Barrett, Development Officer with Sport and Recreation.

“Most people do the right thing. However the sports we are working with want to remind spectators that there is no place for negative comments in our local sport.

“We want everyone to play sport for many years to come because it’s a fun and positive thing to do,” Ms Barrett said.

The decision to run the Shoosh for Kids Week in Western NSW came from the Central West Sport Network Forum’s (hosted by Sport and Recreation’s Orange Office).

The Forums involve representatives from a number of State Sporting Organisations working together to make sport in Western NSW better for everyone.

At the last Forum a number of the sports thought bringing the Shoosh for Kids round to the Western NSW would be great for grass root sport.

The Shoosh for Kids Week campaign will be held from June 13 to 20.

It is supported by Netball NSW, NRL, Central West Rugby, Hockey NSW, Basketball NSW, Central West AFL and Football NSW.
