Information for Juniors
Don't let anyone spoil the fun
Sport is fun - it gives you the opportunity to make new friends, try out new activities and amaze yourself with what you can do!
But for a few children the fun is spoilt by adults who do or say things during sporting activities that hurt or frighten them. What these children are experiencing may be abuse. And they may feel they have no one to talk to about it. Or that no one will listen to them or believe what they say.
Is something worrying you?
If you are a young person and are concerned about how someone is behaving towards you, and you feel you can't speak with your parents/guardian/teacher, it is important to talk to someone straight away. A useful source of reference has been listed below:
