Inappropriate Aggression in School/Youth Sport

 Inappropriate Aggression in School/Youth Sport

There is an increase in inappropriate aggression on sports fields around the world from parents, coaches and players alike. The reasons are varied but stem from an increasing pressure to succeed. Sport is competitive by its nature, but winning doesn’t need to be achieved by aggressive sportsmanship. Such behaviours can result in physical and/or psychological damage to young players and needs to be addressed by all stakeholders.
