Youth Sport And Parental Involvement

Parents can be the best, and the worst, when it comes to youth sport. They take children to early morning training and far distant games, they pay for club fees, coaching, equipment and uniforms, they keep children going when motivation wavers and keep clubs going with endless fundraising and volunteer support. They are our most loyal, diehard, one-eyed fans. And yet, parents can also be the harshest critics, the worst of losers and the poorest of sports.


Sam is an early career researcher and lecturer in Sport, Health and Physical Activity in the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work at Flinders University. He has published 24 peer-reviewed research outputs and received over $120K in combined external grants, tenders and consultancies. Sam is an active member of the Sport, Health, Activity, Performance and Exercise (SHAPE) Research Centre and an invited reviewer for 13 international journals.

Also speaking at this location at 6:30pm is Robert Chalmers.
