It’s Mothers Day on Sunday and a chance to remind parents that they matter in our lives.

The LGFA is running a series of Video content under the banner of the Greatest Gift, the premise being that the greatest gift we can give to children is a love of sport.

Too often though, for myriad reasons of history and ‘the way things are’, it falls to Dads to do the ‘sports thing’ and to get involved in coaching and supporting sons and daughters.

If we are to create a sense of sport being equal for all regardless of gender then we need more mothers involved in coaching and mentoring, not only of girls’ teams but also of boys.

That could be a conversation for the dinner table that could change the lives of those who step forward in a positive way and also enhance the relationship between a parent and a child.
