A recent push for more children to participate in organised sports has prompted a closer look at the laws protecting kids as they play. Sport promotes exercise, team work and (importantly) fun, but as with all sports, children's sport can become hugely competitive and the 'win at all costs' mentality can have some pretty big legal ramifications attached to it. Sports law essentially involves the application of the general law to a sporting context, which also means that children in sport may be treated differently by the law when compared to adults. But just how does the law apply to children involved in sport in regard to areas such as contract law, criminal law and torts? How do these laws help protect children participating in organised sport?
