Sport for all

Sport plays a huge role in bringing people from all sorts of backgrounds together.

But sometimes children feel they are being excluded from sport because of their gender, race or disability.

It's a parent's responsibility to make sure that's not the case.

So make sure you know what to do if you see any form of discrimination, whether it's from the coach, other parents or children.

Take the matter up with the people involved, the club and/or the sport's governing body.

I try and make sport fun for my boys and encouraging their friends to join in. And I make it part of their weekly routine.
- John Dewar, father of two
