The purpose of this test is to encourage parents to reflect on their behaviour around children who participate in sports. The goal is to let you find out with what kind of support you contribute and how it can affect children.
Celebrate the Game is a Fair Play project that Gothia Cup runs in association with Länsförsäkringar, to create a positive, fair, supportive and kind environment during a match.
Why is it important for you that children participate in sports?
Because it gives them an opportunity to have fun and at the same time develop skills within their sport but also socially.
Because it gives them an opportunity to experience the great feeling of victory.
Because it gives them an opportunity to in an early state in their lives learn how to set up goals and understand the meaning of discipline.
If the children lose a match or a competition….
I would give them tons of extra love and support.
It would be frustrating for me, but I would never expose my anger.
I would explain what they should have done to create a bigger chance to achieve victory.
A child who is participating in sports are primarily….
… a child.
… an athlete.
… a bit of both.
Sports shall be:
A place to learn discipline.
Performed in all seriousness, otherwise there is no point of participation.
You and your child/children are on your way home after a match. What is your main focus?
To make sure you understand their feelings and to give them support if it is needed.
To make sure they know how to perform better next time.
All the mistakes that they made and how to avoid them next time.
I support children by…
… telling them what they did great.
… telling them how they can play better.
… telling them that it was good that they won, or bad that they lost.
What do you say/do after a match?
I usually ask them if it was fun.
It depends on if the child/children won or lost.
I usually give them money or gifts if they won.
