Scientific to the Core

The core of the Yellow for Yelling Presentation is provided under License by Working with Parents in Sport.

The presentation and information package has been developed by Gordon MacLelland (CEO WWPIS), BA/Hons Sports Science and PGCE for coaches and parents of children in sport.

Gordon and Ken (founder of Yellow for Yelling) share the passion of creating the right environment for children in sport. Thus, they have created a strong relationship. This relationship started back in 2017 and has become a critical force expanding the Yellow for Yelling program.

This is available for schools and sporting organisations in Australia, recognising the value it provides. Most large organisations and clubs are conscious about promoting high standards and values in the community which foster a great learning environment for children. This program is an excellent opportunity to instill those values.

This 50 page pocket guide by Gordon MacLelland is written for YOU

You do want your child to enjoy and if possible, excel at sport, but you don't want to be one of "those" parents. The one that other parents avoid on the sideline. The one that is embarrassment for their child and for themselves.

You want to be supportive, encouraging and the type of parent whose child runs to you joyfully at the end of the match, regardless of the result.

The Do's & Don'ts in this book just might help you be the sporting parent you want to be.
