We are very excited to be continuing and further expanding our work in Australia by forming part of the consultancy team for Yellow for Yelling alongside world renowned coach developer Reed Maltbie and former Matilda and founder of Game Play Learn Joey Peters.
Yellow for Yelling is the brainchild of founder Ken Willner and is a social Enterprise passionate about keeping children in sport, and through collaboration with international and local professionals, will provide a fresh approach to allow all young people to be inclusive and flourish in sport.
The program aims to increase the level of enjoyment, achievement and personal development. People who take part in the program will enrich their experience in junior sport.
The short term aim is to increase the retention rate in football in South Australia of children from ages 13-17 by 50% by 2025. This means 3000 more participants remain playing compared to 2019.
Together, the three pillars of the program form a framework of disciplinary knowledge. It develops young people’s intrinsic motivation, resilience, mental health, humility, courage & commitment. It fosters greater engagement between parents, coaches and players.
The program will later be expanded into school environments and other sports.
