THE SIDELINE PROJECT LAUNCHES ALL-SPORTS COURSE TO IMPROVE SPECTATOR SIDELINE BEHAVIOR
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA - The Sideline Project today announces the launch of a 15 minute course for youth sports parents to improve sideline behavior. The course, previously available for a soccer-specific audience, now spans all youth sports, and has demonstrated remarkable results in improving sideline behavior as well as the parent-child relationship.
The Sideline Project is a movement to Make Youth Sports Better. It seeks to improve the game day experience for youth sports participants by improving sideline behavior through engaging, supporting, and educating youth sports parents and coaches.
“We all know that our youth sports sidelines are often out of control and The Sideline Project course takes an important step towards improving them” says Skye Eddy, founder of The Sideline Project. “Providing a positive youth sporting experience where all children feel inspired, develop important life skills, and establish healthy habits they will take with them for life must be a top priority for all youth sport organizations.”
Thousands of parents have taken the course and when surveyed, over 62% of parents say their behavior improved because of the course (33% said it didn’t need improving and 5% said it didn’t improve) and over 40% of parents who take the course say their relationship with their child improved because of the course.
The Sideline Project course is available for individual or bulk purchase at TheSidelineProject.com. Additionally, all adults are encouraged to take The Sideline Pledge and add their name to the virtual pledge wall at TheSidelineProject.com.
