We all can do something about children leaving sport.


It is well documented in the media all over the world, parents yelling on the sidelines results in too many children leaving organised sport.

In a study commissioned by the 3 largest soccer clubs in Stockholm, Sweden revealed that 1 out of 3 children considered leaving soccer and 83% of parents said they had seen parents who were pushing their children too much or criticise young referees and officials.


A study in Denmark and another in the USA tell similar stories.

Media in Australia has reported disturbance amongst coaches and parents during junior games in many different sporting codes. In some cases Police were called, and a NSWRL club is backing hiring of security guards for Sunday games. There are several articles in the media (AGGRESSION in kids sport has reached toxic levels) so it is hard to argue that Australia is doing it better. This was in the media recently news.com.au/angry-sport-parents



An environment where children are attracted to play, keep playing sports and enjoy the experience of learning and developing a passion for sport and life.



Yellow for Yelling Aim

Increase the level of enjoyment, achievement and personal development experienced by young players, coaches and parents who participate in the program.

The ultimate aim of this improvement is to lift the rate of participation and retention of young players at your football club.

Anticipated outcomes?

By working with coaches, parents and young people simultaneously, the program influences how each person feels, thinks and behaves:

    • Coaches will experience how they feel more valued and satisfied when they think about how players enjoy and learn during practice and games because the behaviours they see from players and parents are high levels of enthusiasm and positive feedback.
    • Parents will experience how they feel happy and relaxed when they think about their child and the team playing to the best of their ability because they see and hear positive support and enjoyment from players, the coach and other parents.
    • Young people will experience how they feel supported and encouraged when they think about teamwork and trying hard with a positive attitude because they see and hear their play applauded and their effort celebrated.

Ask your club to register for the program. Your children will thank you in the future.
