THE UNDISCUSSED ISSUE OF ‘CHILD RIGHTS’ OF YOUNGER SPORTSPERSONS: A PSYCHOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE

Gurupreet Singh, Shubhdip Kaur.

Abstract
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (2010) gave a list of children’s rights.
These rights are applicable to all children in the world. The constitution of India, along with the rights cited in
UNCRC, guarantees all the children of India some compulsory rights also. Despite the presence of national
policies, laws and child rights, many children of India are victims of unfulfilled rights. This issue becomes even
grave when some particular domain is left undiscussed at higher community levels, such as the one discussed in
this study. The study tried to explore the rights of sports children from psychological perspective. The objectives of
this study were to investigate: (1) The child rights which are generally not protected in various sports institutions of
Punjab and (2) Specific concerns of female sportspersons in fulfillment of child rights in sports institutions. This
study used focus group discussions (FGDs) as research method. Random, purposive and snowball sampling
techniques were used to enroll participants in the study. The findings of this study have been summarized in this
research paper.

Key words: Sports, child rights, drop out, psychology.
