From Teaching To Learning; Results to Relationship; Coaching to Facilitating; Control To Trust; Motivator to Observer; Training to Playing; Exclusive to Inclusive; Structure to The Street.

Course 2. Introducing The GPL Way

What are the VALUES of a Dynamic Learning Environment? We explored 5 Leading Values of The GPL Way:

Course 3. Facilitating The GPL Way Framework

We shared HOW TO: Design The GAME – Let them PLAY – Watch them LEARN

Understanding each concept of the Framework and yet the interaction between Games, Playing and Learning is a wonderful vehicle for Nurturing Passion and Potential in not only our Learners but ourselves as Leaders and our role as Facilitators.

A Message from GPL  Founder and Facilitator JOEY PETERS

Let’s learn together, exchange ideas and experiences and have some FUN!

Hi, Joey Peters here, I would personally like to invite you to join me for a GPL Online Course so we can learn together and support each other in bringing to life The GAME PLAY LEARN Framework to see Passion and Potential nurtured rather than squashed in today’s overly-constrained and controlling Coaching Cultures.

GPL has really changed my whole worldview and particularly in all the various Sporting environments I’ve experienced from Backyards and Grassroots, to Professional Clubs and World Cups.

I WAS the Traditional Coach. I WAS the structured, instructional ‘professional’ who wanted to be the best and expected that for my Players as well.

That controlling, stressful world took a toll on me and the Players I worked with.

I needed change. They needed change.

GPL has made such a big difference in my own professional and personal life as well as seeing players enjoy and improve their sport so much more than before.

GPL has helped me relax and enjoy Coaching so much more”

This is some of what Parents have said about their family’s GPL Experience 

  • “The Kids kept talking about GPL all week. Hudson liked the Music, the Playing and no-one yelling at him. More people need to know about this unique approach to getting kids active and building self-confidence. My boys are loving it and I can really see improvement already in their resilience and independence.” Carissa Brown, Parent
  • “Tom has enjoyed this sport’s relaxed, fun and energy. He has had a wonderful time and met lots of new friends, on his team and opposing teams. The smiles on children’s faces every week are magical. This is how Sport should be!” – Bron Flanagan, Parent

This is more than just an Online Course,

it’s an Experience to kick-start change in Sport

 

 

 Here’s a BONUS!

We’ll also include Our Introductory Game Designs and GPL Session Guide to get you started!

 

GPL Introductory Game Designs

‘Learn THE GAME, By Playing THE GAME’ These 6 Games (with Soccer as the example) make a small change to The Game but make a BIG difference to Learning. There’s no need to be overwhelmed in finding new Games to play and sessions to plan. There’s enough variation here to just use these Game for the whole season. What is your Team’s favourite Game?

This simple Session Guide will help you remember what’s important in the Session, strain with the Context for the day. Who are you with? When is the session? Why are they there? Design the GAME – What Game does your team want to play and Facilitate what the rules will be? Then it’s time to PLAY – How many Players do you have, How many teams do you need and How long will the Games go for? You can then Watch them LEARN – Observe, Reflect and explore Ideas.
