Panathlon Declaration on Ethics in Youth Sports
This declaration represents our commitment to go beyond discussion and to establish clear rules of conduct in the pursuit of the positive values in youth sport. We declare that:
Panathlon Declaration 1.
We will promote the positive values in youth sport more actively with sustained effort and good planning.
Panathlon Declaration 2.
We will continue our effort to eliminate all forms of discrimination in youth sport.
Panathlon Declaration 3.
We recognise and adopt the fact that sports also can produce negative effects and that preventive and curative measures are needed to protect children.
Panathlon Declaration 4.
We welcome the support of sponsors and media but believe that this support should be in accordance with the major objectives of youth sport.
Panathlon Declaration 5.
We therefore formally endorse Ã¢â‚¬ËœThe Panathlon Charter on the Rights of the Child in Sports.
All children have the right :
to practice sports to enjoy themselves and to play to live in a healthy environment to be treated with dignity to be trained and coached by competent people to take part in training that is adapted to their age, individual rhythm and competence to match themselves against children of the same level in a suitable competition to practice sport in safe conditions to rest to have the opportunity to become a champion, or not to be a champion
All this can only be achieved when governments, sports federations, sports agencies, sports goods industries, media, business, sport scientists, sport managers, trainers, parents and children endorse this declaration.
