What are Positive Values in Sport?

We would ask you to take a moment to reflect back on your own experiences as a young person involved in sport or youth activities:

  • what made sport or the activity a positive experience for you?
  • what do you think could have been changed to make it better for yourself or one of your peers?
  • think of one positive word to describe your experience of sport as a child and
  • consider one word to describe a negative experience you may have had.

This section will look at some of the key positive values of sport and what procedures should be in place to support those values. Before moving on to the next page, please consider what your style of communicating with children is like and what values do you bring or promote in your club/activity that will help young people?
