I found it was informative and it raised some good topics as well as questions for discussion. I enjoyed that it was more a session that we could all contribute to getting various perspectives.
I think this sort of thing would be beneficial for parents, coaches and players as it covers aspects that affect all of them and can bring light on how certain behaviours affect and have a flow on effect on everyone, but most importantly the kids.

What you do for the sport Ken is amazing, your presentation hit home and made me realise it’s about having fun with the kids which will make me a better coach along the way.
- Chad Quinn, Parent & Coach
I enjoyed this chat with Ken. We seem to be on the same page. He has a great program and being the technical director of a local soccer club, I will make sure all the junior’s coaches/teachers and parents, will attend his seminars & workshops at our club. We will all benefit from listening to him.

What are leaders saying?
Joey Peters, Ex Matilda's (110 games) & founder of Game Play Learn (GPL)
GPL value protecting a space where kids can explore their unique potential. We can have the best intention to help kids by instructing and critiquing them, but don't they love it most when we are present and relaxed just watching them play. This is why GPL is proud to be a partner with Yellow for Yelling in South Australia in this important initiative to keep kids in sport.
Gordon MacLelland, CEO Working With Parents in Sport

“I proudly support Yellow for Yelling on their vision of creating the best possible environment for children, a place where they can express and learn the game by joy, respect and love. I love this game and I want them to play it smiling”
Children and teenagers quit organised sport regadless of playing in a club, academy or school sport program. Being a sporting parent and grassroots coach, it is difficult to select a successful pathway in sport. Adults expect high performance from youth at an earlier age. This can lead to fatigue, mental breakdown and burnout. This can kill their intrinsic motivation for physical activities.
We provide volunteer parent and coach development. We will work with sporting communities, clubs, organisations and school with focus to keep youth in sport.
