Celebrating parents in sport.

Parents in Sport Week is an opportunity to celebrate the tremendously valuable role that parents play in sport. From driving kids to practices and games, preparing team snacks, organizing events, and providing a listening and supportive ear, parents play an essential role in supporting children in sport.

For coaches and clubs, Parents in Sport Week is a reminder to inform and involve parents and to build a positive environment where kids, coaches, and parents can thrive.

Cycling BC sends a big shoutout and thanks to all the sports parents for their ongoing commitment to youth sport and sports in general.
